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.
