From The British Comedy Guide:
David Haig and Henry Goodman interview
The lovely and well-spoken Henry Goodman and David Haig kindly gave up some of their valuable time to talk to The British Comedy Guide about the brand new series of Yes, Prime Minister. Here’s what we discussed…
Hi Gents. Could we start by asking you to introduce this revival?
Henry: Certainly. I play Sir Humphrey Appleby and I assist the Prime Minister – the famous Jim Hacker – played by my dear colleague David Haig here. What happens is we go off to Chequers for a weekend. Sir Humphrey has encouraged Jim not to invite certain members of the Government so he can manipulate him to take part in a deal. I don’t want to give everything away, but it’s a deal that will transform his future and save Britain.
David: And Europe!
Henry: Indeed. Jim then discovers Humphrey has his own nefarious reasons for wanting to do a deal… and the engine of the show takes off. I think it’s right not to give away everything, because the joy is that Humphrey has his own reasons for doing it, but the Prime Minister says ‘we can’t possibly do that, but how do we get out of the problem?’
