  • Ownership of a flat in London causes Hugh no shortage of problems,another encounter with Angela Heeney causes problems as well & we're all left to wonder how the Minister will keep his job.moreless

    In the final episode of the opening season of The Thick of It we are left in no doubt as to just how duplicitous & conniving these people are as Hugh & Malcolm go toe to toe over a rarely occupied flat owned by the Minister.



    Dan Miller,a smarmy junior Minister,threatens to undermine Hugh's tenuous hold on his Department but ends up taking the fall in another brilliantly executed piece of political manouvering engineered by Malcolm.Peter Capaldi revels in this role which seems light years away from his portrayal of Danny Olsen in 'Local Hero'.And Chris Langham continues to impress with his clever gift of comic timing.



    But there is plenty here for the other regulars too as Glenn,Olly & Terri prepare,rather prematurely as it happens,for life after Hugh Abbott.



    The gorgeous Angela Heeney makes another appearance & her scene with Hugh & Malcolm is very funny indeed.



    All in all an excellent season-closing episode which leaves viewers with much to look forward to in Season Two so make sure you stay tuned.moreless
