The Thick of It: Series 3

The Prime Minister decides to reshuffle his cabinet in an attempt to look like he's doing something. Except no-one with any sense wants to join him on the bridge as the ship appears to be going down. So his chief enforcer Malcolm Tucker is having a hard time finding ministers prepared to volunteer for suicide watch in the run up to the general election. Enter Nicola Murray MP: a woman so far down the list that Malcolm doesn't even have a file on her, but who can be flattered and bullied into accepting the Cabinet post that no-one wants: Secretary of State for Social Affairs and Citizenship. Nicolas got plenty of ideas though - but ideas cost money and in the current climate that means trouble. This series follows Nicola and her used-up team of advisors as they struggle to achieve anything at all under Malcolm's watchful eye. Elsewhere, Nicolas opposite number Peter Mannion and his team finally sense victory is within their grasp, even if they aren't too sure what to do with it when they get it. Being in power is a good thing, right? 8 episodes.
