It is some time in the future.

Gordon Brown is moving in.

President Clinton is looking for her second term in the White House.

And Tony Blair has swapped the corridors of power for carpet swatches in his home in Connaught Square.

But some things don’t change: in Iraq there’s no let-up to the daily death toll and the ex-PM is as obsessed as ever with his legacy.

The cast

Robert Lindsay returns to the role of Tony Blair, with Phoebe Nicholls as Cherie Blair, Peter Mullan as Gordon Brown and Alexander Armstrong as David Cameron.

Says writer Alistair Beaton: “I gather Mr Blair is very concerned about his place in history.

This film is my idea of where that place might be. Whether it’s fiction or prediction remains to be seen.”
