Returning for another three episode mini-series, the Armando Iannucci show really starts to find its footing and work out the show it wants to be, with much more focus now on Peter Capaldi’s Malcolm, who is the clear comedic stand out.

The behind the scenes look at British politics mixes that very British office environment with a high action and stressful world of politics.

Chris Addison also really starts to shine here as his Ollie begins to get dragged into the depraved world of Malcom and his Downing Street enforcers.

The show still doesn’t quite have the urgency and laugh out loud hilarity that ‘Veep’, the American version of this show had, but it’s certainly very good and seems like it is continuing to get better.

Rating = 3.5/5
