The first three series starred Antony Sher as the Labour Prime Minister; the fourth series replaced him with Damian Lewis as a Tory prime minister in a minority government, in response to the United Kingdom coalition government which took office in 2010. The Independent wrote "Myerson's radio play was Shakespearean in its intrigue, its moments of tragedy and comedy and in its multi-layered action.... Sixty action-packed minutes led to a gripping denouement. Number 10 possesses the fast pace, found in the best of TV drama, which radio has been crying out for. Bring on the next four plays."

Stepanakert Airport

Stepanakert Airport is an airport in Khojaly, near Stepanakert, the capital city of the de facto independent Republic of Artsakh. The airport has been under the control of the Republic of Artsakh since 1992. Flights ceased to take place with the escalation of the Nagorno-Karabakh War in 1990; as the airport lies within the internationally recognized borders of Azerbaijan, the current government is unrecognized, there are no codes for the airport in the official IATA list. In 2009, the Nagorno-Karabakh authorities began the reconstruction of the facilities. Though it was scheduled to launch the first commercial flights on May 9, 2011, Karabakh officials postponed a new reopening date throughout the whole of 2011. In May 2012, the director of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic Civil Aviation Administration, Tigran Gabrielyan, announced that the airport would begin operations in mid-2012; however the airport remains closed due to security reasons. The airport is located at an elevation of 2,001 feet above mean sea level.

It has one runway designated 05/23 with an asphalt surface measuring 2,178 by 37 metres. By the end of 1980 the airport served regular passenger flights from Yerevan to Stepanakert. With the escalation of the Karabakh conflict, the constituted authorities of the Azerbaijan SSR blockaded of the Armenian SSR; the airport has been under the control of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic since the ceasefire agreement of the Nagorno-Karabakh War in 1994. In 2009, the construction of a new passenger terminal began. Repair work was conducted on the main runway. According to Nagorno-Karabakh Republic Urban Development Minister Karen Shahramanian, the terminal building would be completed in November 2010. Air navigation equipment was installed; the authorities claim that the renovated airport will be capable of receiving 200 passengers every hour. On April 5, 2011 it was announced. Dmitry Adbashyan, the head of Nagorno Karabakh Republic Civil Aviation Service announced that the airport launch would be taken place during the 2011 summer.

Nagorno Karabakh Republic officials insisted that the postponement was not related to the ongoing dispute with Azerbaijan. Shortly after the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic Civil Aviation Department's statement announcing the May 9, 2011 opening date, Arif Mammadov, director of Azerbaijan’s Civil Aviation Administration warned that according to aviation laws, flights from Yerevan to Stepanakert are not authorized and may be shot down; the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic response came from David Babayan, head of the central information department of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic President’s office, who said that the Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Army "will give an adequate response" if Azerbaijan attempts to shoot down an aircraft. President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan condemned the threat to shoot down civilian aircraft, dismissing it as "nonsense". Sargsyan said that he would be the first passenger on inaugural Yerevan-Stepanakert flight; the Azerbaijani presidential administration condemned Sargsyan's statement as a provocation on the part of Armenia.

A few days Elkhan Polukhov, spokesman for the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry, declared that “Azerbaijan did not and will not use force against civil facilities.”The United States Assistant Secretary, Philip Gordon, as well as ambassadors to Azerbaijan and Armenia, Matthew Bryza and Marie L. Yovanovitch characterized that threat as "unacceptable"; the OSCE Minsk Group, which mediates the conflict, reaffirmed that the operation of this airport could not be used to support any claim of a change in the status of Nagorno-Karabakh, urged the sides to act in accordance with international law and consistent with current practice for flights over their territory. A number of individuals and groups have voiced their opposition to the opening of the airport, including the United States ambassador to Azerbaijan Richard Morningstar who stated in November 2012 he was "convinced that the functioning of the airport would not help the peace process."Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, who stated “that such provocative actions will not serve to promote the peaceful settlement of the Karabakh conflict," and called on Armenia "to stop such provocative steps.”

The GUAM's Secretary General Valeri Chechelashvili responded by stating that the airport was within the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Azerbaijan and can not operate without Azerbaijan’s permission. On April 14, 2011, twenty-three members from the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe endorsed a declaration condemning “the construction by Armenia of an airport in the occupied Azerbaijani territories.” The document stresses. The declaration required Yerevan to stop the airport construction; the Turkish government condemned the efforts of Armenia to open the airport, reiterated that it will close its air space to Armenia, if the opening goes ahead. It is expected that Karabakh will have a regular flight services only to Yerevan, with a state-owned carrier called Artsakh Air. Created in January 26, 2011, it intended to purchase three Bombardier CRJ200 jets in 2011. Officials have only stated; as of May 2019, flights had not started.
