The Thick of It, Series 1 - 3
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.
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.

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.
Deserves it's cult status
Utterly superb. Malcolm Tucker is a perfectly written and performed characterisation of AC.
Amount the best comedies ever to be written, certainly top 3 or 4
