No Job for a Lady is a British sitcom that aired on ITV between 7 February 1990 and 10 February 1992. Starring Penelope Keith, it was written by Alex Shearer, and directed and produced by John Howard Davies. It was made by Thames Television for ITV.


Note - In the four Series One episodes in which Nigel Humphreys appeared, he was credited as Nigel Humphries.


No Job for a Lady revolved around Jean Price, the newly elected, somewhat rebellious Labour MP for an inner-city constituency, and her life in the House of Commons. She is married to Geoff Price, and as well being an MP she has to try and look after her house and children. The chamber of the Commons was never seen, and most of the scenes took place in her office, which she shared with her Scottish colleague Ken Miller, the lobby and in the lounges of Westminster. Other characters included the whip Norman and the Conservative MP Sir Godfrey Eagan.
