The Thick of It: Season 3: Episode 4 -- The civil servants at DoSAC are preparing for a visit from the shadow minister Peter Mannion. For Mannion and his team, this informal pre-election briefing is a good opportunity. For Nicola Murray, it is just another distraction on a day when nothing seems to be going right. All she wants to do is get Glenn and Olly to kick-start the Fourth Sector Pathfinder Initiative. And then she gets a call.
