The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

The im­pend­ing Fed­eral elec­tion makes this Bri­tish se­ries all the more in­ter­est­ing as it is easy to imag­ine some of the same po­lit­i­cal machi­na­tions go­ing on here at the mo­ment. For fol­low­ers of the se­ries, the bum­bling Ni­cola Mur­ray and foul-mouthed and tem­pered min­der Mal­colm Tucker are in op­po­si­tion while Peter Man­nion is, if not en­joy­ing, at least en­dur­ing, a stint in power. As in the pre­vi­ous se­ries, there is a lot of swear­ing but the put downs are as clever as they are bru­tal. They also come in­cred­i­bly fast and the ad­van­tage of the DVD over watch­ing the show on TV is the abil­ity to rewind and re­play. ★★★✩ Ex­tras: Deleted scenes, com­men­taries ★★★
