The Thick of It

The Thick of It Specials

Rating: R16
Released by BBC and Roadshow

A couple of specials released by the Thick Of It are actually head and shoulders above any other comedy around.

Peter Capaldi once again reprises his vicious spin doctor Malcolm Tucker in the Rise of The Nutters and Spinners and Losers, in these two mini serials. Capaldi once again dominates the satirical proceedings with his caustic wit, powerhouse performance and blistering presence.

But the show wouldn't be as good as it is without the smart and spot on writings of the team behind it - viciously targeting the absurdity of politics and politicians, it makes for an insightful piece which is also side splittingly and intelligently funny.

Rating: 7/10
