Storyline

Peter Mannion is now secretary of state for the Department of Social Affairs and Citizenship. Spin doctor Stewart Pearson, on PM's orders, instructs him to launch an education initiative, to the annoyance of junior minister Fergus and the embittered Glenn. Glenn is supported by Terri, who is fed up and wants redundancy. Peter's brief is to launch an Apps initiative in a local school but the press conference shows him to be wholly out of touch with the subject. Ultimately he must reconcile with Fergus at a further press call to gain street cred - and just about does it. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

In this episode, Roger Allam seemingly refers to his role as DI Fred Thursday in the ITV series Endeavour - the Morse prequel that was first broadcast in 2012, with some very subtle wordplay. In Endeavour, Roger Allam plays the Senior officer, to Morse the lower ranking officer, in exact parallel to Morse, where Morse is the Senior officer, and Lewis is the Junior. "He's Lewis. I'm Morse". See more »

Goofs

Peter Mannion's ministerial car is a 2012 Jaguar XJ, however for the interior shots a Mercedes E-Class is used, which has a noticeably different roofline shape and no little side windows behind the rear doors. See more »

The weak espisode of the Thick Of It
26 March 2018 | by chunkylefungaSee all my reviews

No Tucker, no humour or banter, mostly just a mockumentary with jokes falling short.
