The Thick of It

‘Spinners and Losers: Opposition Extra’ is airing on UKTV Gold on Tuesday 14th July at 11pm.

The Thick of It is a British comedy television series that satirises the inner workings of modern British government. It was first broadcast for two short series on BBC Four in 2005, initially with a small cast focusing on a government minister, his advisers and their party’s spin-doctor. The cast was significantly expanded for two hour-long specials to coincide with Christmas and Gordon Brown’s appointment as prime minister in 2007, which saw a number of new characters forming the opposition party added to the cast. These characters continued when the show switched channels to BBC Two for its third series in 2009. A fourth series about a coalition government was broadcast in autumn 2012, with the last episode transmitted on 27 October 2012. In a 2012 interview, series creator Armando Iannucci said the fourth series of the programme would probably be its last.
