The Thick of it Special 2007
“Spinners and Losers”

When the PM resigns, the government go berserk over one night looking for a successor who is not Tom. Will Malcolm spin out of control?

This takes place over one night. Apparently everyone stays up to plot the rise of the replacement PM. It’s better than the first special and shows the futility of those wrestling with the levers of power.

This is where I leave the show and return to season 5 of Veep. After that, the combination of the two that is the 2009 film ‘In the Loop’.
