Francis Urquhart is too experienced a politician not to know that everything must end, even his long career as British prime minister. All things must end, but not always gracefully.
These grounded political TV dramas follow the day-to-day work of politicians as they serve the public, or more often serve themselves. Think more 'House of Cards', less '24'.
Corruption, cover-up, abuse of power, sex--we suspect life at Downing Street is not, in fact, quite this exciting--but it makes for great television.
The original House of Cards aired in the UK in 1990, and was one of several classic political thrillers from the 1980s and 1990s.
Forget the action sequences and badass special agents, because these shows delve into the political side of conspiracies--but if brains are not better than brawn, they can always call in Jack Bauer.
