The Thick of It: The Missing DoSAC Files

Armando Iannucci, Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, Ian Martin, Tony Roche


In case of loss, please return to Malcolm Tucker pretty fucking sharpish.

During the course of his reign, Malcolm Tucker - bard of spin, Communications Director for Number 10 and tough shoot-first-then-shoot-again-later professional bastard - has collected incriminating, humiliating and potentially career-destroying papers from the DoSAC team and their opposition. These include Ollie Reeder’s piss-poor smear file on Peter Mannion, Nicola Murray’s gargantuanly fanciful policy ideas, Terri Coverley’s pant-wettingly pathetic Waitrose appraisal form and Malcolm’s utterly insightful dos and don’ts for politicians appearing on TV.

Should it all go manboobs up at the election, this dossier of private failures, career cul-de-sacs and inept social disfunction is his insurance policy.

So when it goes missing, Malcolm is angry. Apo-fucking-pleptically angry.

Bulging with never seen before personnel files, policy drafts, letters, emails, transcripts of phone calls and mood boards, The Missing DoSAC Files is a hilarious, profane and all-too-accurate glimpse into public life from the writers of the award-winning The Thick of It and In the Loop .
