  • Government wunderkind Julius Nicholson infiltrates Hugh's department,almost comes to blows with Malcolm & manages to get himself promoted by the end of the episode!

    10
    Rarely do we see Malcolm Tucker meet his match,but in this episode Julius Nicholson (and whose side is this guy on anyway?) almost brings him undone with some swift maneuvering & a barrage of political doublespeak.Although Malcolm outswears Julius & spends more time with the PM than his rival,it is Julius who manages to secure a promotion by the time this cleverly constructed episode reaches its conclusion.



    Julius also gets up the noses of Hugh,Ollie & Glenn as he proposes some sort super portfolio & streamlining of Hugh's department.Fearing he may be dumped in the rumoured reshuffle,Hugh confronts Malcolm only to learn he has no hope because the PM's wife doesn't like the 'cut of his jib'.A hastily arranged & poorly attended party doesn't help Hugh's cause either.moreless
