Thick 3.1

Nicola Murray MP, new Secretary of State at DoSAC, replaces Hugh Abbott as Head of DoSAC and comes without her own staff, so Glenn and Ollie find themselves unexpectedly keeping their jobs. Meanwhile, Malcolm is arranging publicity for a by-election. The term “omnishambles” is used for the first time in this episode.

A change of personal dynamics as a woman takes on the Chris Langham role as MP. She is portrayed with more agency and more assertively. This makes it feel like Malcolm Tucker has more than he can handle.
