"Sir Frank Gordon" is a fictional character in the 1980s British sitcom Yes Minister and its sequel Yes, Prime Minister. In the fictional universe/universe of the show, he is Permanent Secretary to the Treasury/Assistant Secretary to the Treasury and later the Permanent Secretary to the Treasury. He was portrayed by Peter Cellier.

Sir Frank makes his first appearance in the Yes Minister episode "The Quality of Life/The Quality of Life," gleefully listening to Sir Humphrey Appleby/Sir Humphrey Appleby's machinations against the latter's minister, Jim Hacker.

Sir Frank makes more frequent appearances in Yes, Prime Minister, and in doing so, appears as both an ally and competitor with Sir Humphrey. As allies, in the Yes, Prime Minister episode of "A Real Partnership," Sir Frank conspires with Sir Humphrey to push through a civil service pay increase in a time of financial stringency. As competitors, Sir Frank attempts to undermine Sir Humphrey by suggesting that he would be able to take Humphrey's role in heading half of the British Civil Service ("The Key (Yes, Prime Minister)/The Key"). Indeed, it is their roles as de facto joint heads of the Civil Service (Sir Humphrey as Cabinet Secretary and Sir Frank as Permanent Secretary of the Treasury) that brings them most often into conflict.

Nothing would be enough...probably best to be in prison for life.

It's just completely changed him. You don't even have to ask him. You can just see it.
