Description

Welcome to the Ministry for Social Affairs and Citizenship (DoSAC), a government department barely registering on the Today Programme radar, but high-profile enough to receive the attentions of Malcolm Tucker, the government's director of communications, whose ferocity is only matched by his skill in delivering incredible, foul-mouthed tirades. Successive ministers (Hugh Abbott and Nicola Murray) and their backroom team lie, backstab and hopelessly bluff their way through gaffes, crises, Prime Ministerial resignations and possible election dates - only thankful that Shadow minister, Peter Mannion also has little idea what is going on... Irreverent, brilliantly sweary and painfully funny, this series smashes its way through the corridors of power in a bulldozer of hilarious farce and sharp satire.

  • Just fantastic

    I had dipped my toe into this before, but decided to purchase the complete series 1-3 to watch at my leisure. Bit of an error, watched them all back to back. This is absolutely first rate television - easily one of the funniest shows to have graced TV. Aggressive yet subtle. Malcolm Tucker is just perfect, and to see how his situation changes, along with those around him is fantastic. I really could not recommend this series any more, and the specials are also fantastic. If you are interested in politics - you have to see this. If you just want some classic put down's - you have to watch this.
  • A rip off

    I thought this was the full series when I bought it, more full me I suppose.

    The Thick of it is so gut wrenchingally funny you'll find yourself cancelling all other plans and watching scene after scene of Malcolm and Jamie verbally decimating people as though it were a high class drug.
  • Fantastic

    Sarcasm, double entendre, irony and satire all woven skilfully together to bring us a comedy that's first rate. It's a great sitcom, particularly series 3 when it really comes into it's element. Would definitely recommend.
  • Deserves it's cult status

    Utterly superb. Malcolm Tucker is a perfectly written and performed characterisation of AC.

    The Thick of It is so brilliant and hilarious you will literally wet yourself. Thought not for anyone with a particular dislike of swearing, Malcolm Tucker is a true foul mouthed scary Scot (which is a good thing). Gets better and better the further through the series you get and there's a fourth series on the way as well! A must watch for anyone with even the vaguest of interests in British comedy.
