Featuring every series, special episode and bonus extra of the BAFTA and British Comedy award winning series. Series 1 was formed of the first three episodes ever made. Then another three episodes were broadcast and called 'Series 2'. Then came the specials. Following on from those came the most recent eight episodes, which were compiled as 'Series 3'. When the first six episodes (Series 1 and 2) came out on DVD, the release merged them into one series and call it 'Series 1', which explains why ‘Series 2’ isn’t available separately on DVD (it’s now part of ‘Series 1’). This release comprises all three series, plus the specials, so there are no unreleased episodes to miss out on.
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.
From the creator of THE DAY TODAY and I'M ALAN PARTRIDGE, THE THICK OF IT is a biting comedy satire set in the world of Westminster politics. The show follows the trials and tribulations of Hugo Abbot, a lowly MP who finds himself continually harassed by the PM’s policy enforcer. THE THICK OF IT is an award-winning, and critically acclaimed series that is bolstered by the work of some of Britain’s best comedy writers and a fine cast. Includes all the episodes from the show’s first, second and third series.
