I am reviewing ‘The Rise of the Nutters’ and ‘Spinners and Losers’ together as even though they are technically separate specials, they very much work together to tell one ‘The Thick Of It’ narrative.

The first two seasons were enjoyable without ever really gripping me, but I felt really hooked by these specials, with the plot consistently twisting and turning at breakneck speed, and some of the one liners are totally hilarious.

The whole ensemble works very well together but it’s absolutely Peter Capaldi’s show now and he dominates in screen, with his foul mouth and bad temper.

The talents of the likes of Armando Iannucci, Simon Blackwell, and Jesse Armstrong behind the scenes really allows you to understand why this show is so good.

The whole dynamic of the show has shifted and I look forward to where it goes in the next season.

Rating = 4/5
