Win a Copy of The Thick of It Seasons 1 – 4 on DVD

For the first time ever, the full unedited version of The Thick of It: Season 1-4 is out on DVD. The Thick of It smashes its way through the corridors of power in a bulldozer of amusing slip-ups and sharp satire. This brilliant and hilarious series chronicles the blunders of the fictitious Department of Social Affairs and Citizenship, a government department barely registering on the national radar. It stars Peter Capaldi (the new Doctor Who) as the foul-mouthed Director of Communications, Malcolm Tucker.


In this Ministry, every announcement is followed by a whirlwind of u-turns, every policy is a scramble and every mishap is met with abuse from the Prime Minister’s policy enforcer. Garlanded with rave reviews and packed with awards, this irreverent, brilliant, and painfully funny series is justly seen as a jewel in the BBC’s crown.

The Thick of It Seasons 1 – 4 on DVD:

• Includes Seasons 1-4 and both specials: “The Rise of the Nutters” and “Spinners and Losers”
• Commentary by writer and director, Armando Iannucci
• Deleted scenes and outtakes
• Out of the Thick of It – One 10-minute behind-the-scenes featurette for each episode of Season Three
• Production photo galleries with commentary

  6. Amy says

    I have not seen this, but would LOVE to win a copy!!! It sounds wonderful, and I’m always looking for new British comedies/dramas to watch.

  7. Stephanie says

    They tried running this on BBC America but it did not make it so it would be great to finally get to see something I have heard so much about. I am also very pleased with Peter Capaldi as the choice for the new Doctor and look forward to seeing him in December (if not sooner!)

    I had never heard of this show until my friend and fellow Anglophile Carmen recommended it to me.
    Capaldi is one of those faces you know you know but can’t put a name too. Looking forward to his take on the Doctor.

    Love what I saw of this show on BBC America, and love Peter Capaldi.
    [I still think Tom Baker was The Real Doctor Who, but I'm willing to let Peter Capaldi convince me otherwise.] Meanwhile, I’d love to win a copy of The Thick of It.

  11. Liz says

    It would be marvellous to have a DVD of this show.

    And I’m Whovian – have been since Tom Baker (MY Doctor! :))
