One day his best friend Carl throws himself under a train, setting off a disastrous sequence of events that will change Martin's life forever... Into this mess steps Patrick, a friend from way back.

My Dad's the Prime Minister

My Dad's the Prime Minister logoOriginally created as a children's show, it was told from the point-of-view of 12-year-old Dillon who is unfortunate enough to be the son of Prime Minister Michael Phillips. He finds life in Number 10 is no joke - his parents are too busy running the country to give him the time of day, the smallest of excursions requires a huge amount of planning and security and, worst of all, he's a figure of fun at school. To compensate, he often retreats into a fantasy world, where he's a tough Newsnight presenter, putting tricky questions to squirming grown-ups.
