The Thick of It, Series 4HDMA15+Closed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


Government embarrassment, ministerial cock-up, coalition rows, backroom deals, policy U-turns, spin-doctoring, political back-stabbing, wild media speculation, and more time spent with ones family. It can only be the eagerly-anticipated return of Armando Iannucci’s Westminster political comedy. Rebecca Front and Peter Capaldi reprise their BAFTA-winning roles as Nicola Murray and Malcolm Tucker, now consigned to the opposition benches, but still desperate for power. Roger Allam returns as Peter Mannion, the new Secretary of State for Social Affairs, supported by his team of special advisors and thwarted by his new coalition partners. With Chris Addison, Vincent Franklin, Olivia Poulet, Joanna Scanlan, James Smith, Will Smith, Geoffrey Streatfeild, and Ben Willbond.

Customer Reviews



Absolute perfection

This is, hands down, the finest comedy series to ever hit the screen. One of the things that makes it so remarkable is that if you put cameras up in the offices of Government Ministers, you'd be hard pressed to spot the difference between the satire & reality.

I think the Oscars regained just a modicum of cred. in that one year when The Loop (the movie version of this) was nominated for best film. I'm absolutely gutted that this is the finale season.

I reckon if Peter Capaldi isn't knighted by the Queen for just being utterly brilliant, then there really is something seriously wrong with the system.

Masterclass in politics and profanity

Faultless portrayal of political incompetence, intrigue and diabolism… mixed with some of the best profanity you'll ever hear. Iannucci continually crafts the best dialogue.
