Reality TV?

I hope so. From the Yorkshire Post:

Set in 2010, The Trial Of Tony Blair, starring Robert Lindsay, sees the former premier plagued by nightmares about the war and fears that he will be killed by a suicide bomber.

Viewers of the More4 drama will also see Mr Blair convert to Catholicism to seek forgiveness for his sins.

Yesterday Lindsay, who also starred as the Prime Minister in the drama A Very Social Secretary, said he took the role because he was angry over the Iraq war.He said: "I still think it's an illegal war and has been a huge mistake and it's not going to get any better."

In the drama, which is to be broadcast on Monday, George Bush is in rehabilitation after being discovered comatose at his ranch.

Oh, tish poo! I'm sure the Secret Service is used to that!

A fleshed-out review appears at This is London.
