Brian Cox to star in BBC4 MP expenses drama


December 11, 2009

Just as the BBC finds itself under fire from the government, the corporation plans to produce a new satirical drama on the subject of MPs’ expenses.

The drama will be called “Bringing Down The House” and it will star top actor Brian Cox as the House of Commons Speaker, Michael Martin, and Anna Maxwell Martin as the journalist Heather Brooke, who has been credited with uncovering the expenses scandal through the Freedom of Information act.

This could prove another embarrassing time for some the country’s top members of parliament who probably had hoped that all of that had been forgotten.

Production has already started in London and it is clear that as soon as the general election is announced this drama will air on BBC4.
