A great piece of Drama
22 January 2007 | by jp-stirSee all my reviews

The premise of the programme was that after eventually standing down as Prime Minister Tony Blair is called to the Hague to face war crime charges. Ithought this, although slightly far fetched was a great piece of Drama and shows why More4 is one of the best channels to come out of the usual dross of digital channels. Robert Lindsays portrayal of Tony Blair was magnificent and rather than doing an impression of Blair instead gave a great performance. Peter Mullan as Gordon Brown was inspired and it was well into the show before I even realised that it was him playing the part, and although only seen briefly Alistair Armstrong as The image conscious David Cameron was brilliant. The soundtrack also was well devised from Johnny Cash to The Killers. But perhaps the most impressive part of the drama is not the funny elements or to see Blair get his just desserts, rather the idea that the War on Terror has had a deep emotional impact on Blair causing him to have hallucinations and nightmares. All in all a great programme.
