TV: The Thick Of It

The Thick Of It is having a mid-series break this week, which presents a catch-up opportunity for those who, stung by the BBC's bizarre Saturday-night scheduling, missed out on the "coalicious" opening salvo of episodes. It's all change for Peter Mannion, who is now minister of DoSAC, but thanks to the terms of the power-sharing agreement, has a grating junior minister to contend with. Malcolm – locked out of the corridors of power for the first time in the series – is nevertheless busy, masterminding a plot against opposition leader Nicola Murray: she's going to "kick her own head in".

Carrie listens to Thelonius Monk, while Treme is also filled with jazz, proving a powerful soundtrack can enhance any TV plot

The squeaks and squalls of jazz are an essential part of Homeland. Music features frequently in the Channel 4 Us import, from the hazy, trumpet-led dissonance of the opening titles – complete with archive footage of Louis Armstrong sandwiched next to the portentous rambling of Donald Rumsfeld – to CIA members Carrie and Saul's discussions about their favourite jazz musicians.

Yet the music does not merely add an air of sophistication to the drama. It is another knot to untie as we unravel the complexities of the characters in particular the wayward Carrie (Claire Danes). At the beginning of Sunday's episode she listened to a version of Thelonious Monk's standard Straight, No Chaser while driving to a meeting at CIA headquarters in Washington.

Monk was hospitalised at various points in »
