"I love the idea of finding elements of something that you can unexpectedly apply to a political context now. When you put Matt Hancock in Tony Hancock's hat, he immediately takes on the role. Tony's most famous episode has to be The Blood Donor and I was able to hang the rollout of the Covid vaccinations - and the health secretary's offer to get the jab on live TV - on that."
