The Thick Of It

The BBC’s political satire has had a bump in its profile thanks to the unfortunate goings on of Chris Langham and this year’s rather more brilliant spin-off film In The Loop. Peter Capaldi as Malcolm Tucker is the highlight, as ever, and he was intimately involved in (arguably) this series’ swearing highlight: "I think we should use the carrot and stick approach, yeah. You take a carrot, you stick it up his fucking arse, followed by the stick." Funny, and also important.
