Good news for fans of 'The Thick Of It' and foul-mouthed spin doctor Malcolm Tucker - both the show and he are back! Peter Capaldi will be reprising the role of the sweary Scotsman who terrorised Whitehall in the previous series of the show as well as in his film appearance in the one-off spin-off 'In The Loop'.

Tucker will be joined by fellow regular MPs including Nicola Murray, played by Rebecca Front, and Peter Mannion, played by Roger Allam. Mannion is coping with life in a new coalition government, his new partner being Fergus Williams, played by 'Spooks' star Geoffrey Streatfeild. Speaking about the new series, creator Armando Iannucci commented "This series takes The Thick Of It into exciting and uncharted territory: a new coalition government, and Malcolm and Nicola fretting in the wings. For the first time too a storyline takes us all the way through the series right to the bitter, bitter end, with government and opposition convulsed in an incident that questions every political convention imaginable, but in a funny way."

The show will air this Autumn and will run for seven episodes, having been commissioned back in 2010. It'll be the fourth series after the first began to huge critical acclaim back in 2005 capitalising on the political climate surrounding the Iraq war.
