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?
