What Is The Power of Parker About?

Despite the bravado, it’s all going wrong for Martin Parker - played by Conleth Hill who recently starred in Derry Girls and Holding. The entrepreneur, who owns a chain of electrical stores, is desperately trying to maintain his grip on the wonderful, flashy life he’s built.

But as his debts mount, his affair with his mistress starts to unravel, and Britain moves out of the yuppie era and into a new decade, it’s clear he's in over his head. When those he’s rubbed up the wrong way have the chance to bring him down, hilarity ensues. Thankfully, his downfall is comedy gold and nothing if not deserved

Written by Sian Gibson and Paul Coleman — both of who are known for their work with Peter Kay — the script is full of wit and wry observations. As you might expect, cringe worthy moments are not in short supply. From the clothes to the cultural references, The Power of Parker is a fun blast of nostalgia — but the comedy is as fresh as it is funny.

Final Words

Whether you remember the ‘90s or simply feel like you do (thank you TikTok), you’ll appreciate the weird and wonderful world of The Power of Parker. It’s light and easy while engaging enough to keep you bingeing the next episode, then the next. This is a much-watch for fans of classic British comedy, and a great opportunity to see yet another side of the endlessly talented Conleth Hill. Give it a watch!
