Fresh from the international success of its spin-off movie In the Loop, the brutal but brilliant The Thick of It is back. Packed with political double dealing and sharp satire, Armando Iannucci's universally acclaimed series has won a host of awards including the comedy award at The South Bank Show Awards, 2 Royal Television Society Awards, 2 Baftas and a National Television Award.

In an attempt to look like he's doing something, the Prime Minister decides to reshuffle his cabinet. But no-one with any sense wants to join the Prime Minister on the bridge as the ship appears to be going down. So his chief enforcer Malcolm Tucker is having a hard job finding ministers prepared to volunteer for suicide watch in the run up to the general election. Enter Nicola Murray MP: a woman so far down the list that Malcolm doesn't even have a file on her but who can be flattered and bullied into accepting the Cabinet post that no-one wants: Secretary of State for Social Affairs and Citizenship.

Nicola's got plenty of ideas though: the Social Mobility Agenda, the Fourth Sector (whatever that is), but ideas cost money and in the current climate that means trouble. This series follows Nicola and her used-up team of advisors as they struggle to achieve anything at all under Malcolm's watchful eye. With Nicola's opposite number Peter Mannion and his team circling, they finally sense victory is within their grasp, even if they aren't too sure what to do with it when they get it.

Being in power is a good thing, right?

This series just gets better with each new one. Series 3 is by far the sharpest, wittiest and funniest yet. All concerned, from actors, writers and cameramen deserve to be showered in BAFTA's.
Malcolm Tucker is in all probability the only politician I would consider voting for. Capaldi gets all the killer lines, which include the some of the best put-downs in British comedy history.
It's an absolute masterpiece of television.

 You'll never get sick of it!

Not only was it the best comedy series probably ever on TV, but the writing is so sharp you have to watch it at least three times just catch all the gags. Peter Capaldi as Malcolm Tucker is the most viciously hilarious character ever to grace the box, with the most perfect supporting cast. And a special mention for David Haig in the later episodes, whose Steve what's-his-name is almost a match for Peter Capaldi in his sheer pent-up, dangerously-raging insanity. Absolutely top notch!

 The best series yet

In my personal opinion, the best series yet. Malcolm Tucker brings a whole new collection of swearwords to the small screen as he handles the disasters of the ministers. An intelligent comedy, superbly written and brilliantly brought to live by the actors. More of the same please....!

 The Awesomeness of it.

The Thick of It was great in the first place, but series 3 is simply superb, the writing became punchier, more intelligent, and the Cast gelled together perfectly. Peter Capaldi, Rebecca Front and Chris Addison are brilliant, backed by a top class cast.
