Masterpiece Theatre once again has doled out a (tiny) food dollop in its new presentation starring Joan Horrocks, about the manager of a supermarket in Leeds who decides to run for Parliament. She runs as an independent, rallies the nation, and, faster than a runaway shopping trolley, becomes Prime Minister, all the while being shown peeling carrots, and ( we think) doing something with spuds. And, of course, the first episode opens with her zipping around her store, Greengages Supermarket, efficient, friendly and ever on the alert.
( Don't turn this on for the food, however, but for the tight writing and fine acting. Dilys Laye has a brief, gemlike scene as QE II--brilliant, worth the price of Public Broadcasting membership. )
