In fact, John Major succeeded Margaret Thatcher during the period the three series were being produced. Major was never seen as the scheming Francis Urquhart character of the series, however.
Surely Major was, in a bizarre piece of foresight, Thatcher's fictional successor Henry Collingridge? At the start of TPTK, Urquhart tells the viewer something like "Remember the nice man who talked about the classless society? He had to go." Timrollpickering 23:54, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

Strangely enough, the second novel is meant to be a sequel to the first TV series, rather than the first novel. I think that Dobbs was rather peeved at how the first one was adapted and wanted to get the last word in with the character. — Laura Scudder | talk 17:42, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
