The Thick of It: The Missing DoSAC Files Summary

The Thick of It: The Missing DoSAC Files by Armando Iannucci

The Thick Of It begins as 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 poor smear file on Peter Mannion, Nicola Murray's gargantuanly fanciful policy ideas, Terri Coverley's pant-wettingly pathetic Waitrose appraisal from and Malcolm's utterly insightful dos and don'ts for politicians appearing on TV. Should it go manboobs up at the election, this dossier of private failures, career cul-de-sacs and inept social misfunction is his insurance policy. So when it goes missing, Malcolm is angry. Apo-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, Oscar-nominated In the Loop and Emmy award-winning Veep. The Thick of It was written by Armando Iannucci, the co-creator of Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa and his co-writers Jesse Armstrong, Tony Roche, Simon Blackwell and swearing consultant Ian Martin. Initially broadcast on BBC Four, the show starred Peter Capaldi, Chris Langham, Rebecca Front and Chris Addison.
