  • After a nasty editorial about Hugh is published The Department of Social Affairs decides to strike back by announcing a new policy & enlisting the views of a focus group to develop it.Just another shambolic day really for Hugh & his inept staff!moreless

    This second episode of The Thick of It takes things up a notch or three with a cracking script,snappy dialogue & razor sharp wit delivered in spades,all expertly delivered by this fine ensemble cast.



    Another of the Department of Social Affairs policy announcements goes haywire as the Press have a field day rubbishing it & things deteriorate further when the Department decides to call in a focus group to canvass ideas.



    Olly is impressed by one focus group member,Mary,who he believes personifies 'Middle England' & suggests Hugh's staff call her in for a one on one.It is soon revealed that Mary isn't who she initially claimed to be.



    After a succession of crossed wires & a top of the range deluge of abuse from Malcolm,the Department goes into damage control for the umpteenth time to try & salvage a modicum of credibility.



    The Thick of It continues to impress on so many levels but if strong language is likely to offend then tune out now.moreless
