‘The Thick Of It’ Season Two – A First Glimpse

Now the summer’s over, the best comedy shows are starting up again all at once. ‘Peep Show’ is in full swing (and as brilliant as ever), ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Season 7 starts this Thursday – and Armando Iannucci’s political swearing-symphony ‘The Thick Of It’ returns in the last week of October on BBC2 (transmission date still TBC).

In this super-brief preview snippet there’s no sign of rumoured guest star Chris Morris – he’s supposed to be playing an MP embroiled in a sex scandal – but the demonic character of Malcolm Tucker has evidently not mellowed. His assessment of one MP: “He’s so dense that light bends around him.”

Oh, and the new series stars Rebecca Front, who you might recognise from ‘The Day Today’. Check out the new cast photo:
