"Alistair"[edit]

I've just completed the cast list as shown at the start of the programme. One thing I noticed is that Harry Enfield is listed as playing "Alistair" (sic - no quotes). This is obviously Alastair Campbell, but is both misspelled and missing the surname. I've left the article as per the filmed cast list.

Anyone any idea why this is the case?

Awards Nominations[edit]

I would like to propose award nominations be added to this page - it was nominated for a BAFTA (Best Comedy Programme 2012) and a Comedy Award (Best Comedy Drama 2011). I have a conflict of interest with this article therefore I would like to check this is ok to add rather than go ahead and add it myself. This is accurate and verifiable and is a nice addition to the article.

It would be best to establish notability of these nominations; were they covered in newspapers / on (unassociated) TV/radio at the time, or similar? Pinkbeast (talk) 12:53, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
I know at least the BAFTA award is notable, so she should have no problem there. Kevin Rutherford (talk) 14:34, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
OK, I'll stick that in. Pinkbeast (talk) 14:40, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Edit Article[edit]

I tried to edit a line in the article but it has been undone citing COI. I understand this but I have emails from another Wikipedia editor who recommended that I make that change myself. Can you recommend what I should do here? I can forward on emails and the reasons for this request? Snowdrop4 (talk) 12:49, 21 March 2013 (UTC)

They should probably have discussed it on the talk page. The cited reviews are clearly mixed and I see no reason to change that wording. Pinkbeast (talk) 12:52, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
She e-mailed OTRS here, and has been doing so for a number of days. I'm only seeing one review that could be construed as being negative, and the rest are the opposite of that, so I don't see a reason why she can't write that. Kevin Rutherford (talk) 14:34, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
I see four; two positive, one negative, one "quite funny in parts, and entirely unfunny in others"; I think "mostly positive" is a stretch. Still, do as you please. Pinkbeast (talk) 14:40, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

I have two more links to support the proposed change to the article, so hopefully that will justify the edit.

Many thanks

Thank you. The Times article is behind a paywall, so I can't check it, but the Independent article adds support to your point of view. Pinkbeast (talk) 15:34, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your help and the update. Snowdrop4 (talk) 15:41, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Please do not misuse the minor edit facility. Edits should only be marked as minor when they are clearly and unequivocally uncontroversial. For example, fixing your typo in "nitrous" is a minor edit. Pinkbeast (talk) 15:43, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
I have fixed that typo and changed the mention of the Times review to reflect only the text which is generally readable. (If you can discover in which print edition of the Times that review appeared, the whole thing could be used.) Pinkbeast (talk) 15:47, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Apologies, my mistake. Yes it appeared in The Times, section Saturday Review, 15th October 2011. Thanks Snowdrop4 (talk) 16:06, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
I have re-inserted your description of the review as "enthusiastic", since we are now providing a reference to the complete text. Pinkbeast (talk) 16:20, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
