Peter Capaldi: 'The Thick Of It' update, and 'The Suspicions of Mr Whicher' review

  • The Thick Of It series four “should be ready for Autumn”
Armando Iannucci has confirmed that series four of BBC political satire The Thick of It is in the can and ready to be edited in time for an autumn air date

Finally, some news to celebrate from the BBC drama and comedy section. Cameras have been rolling (do camera still roll? Whirring perhaps?) on the new series of The Thick of It since March, and this morning creator Armando Iannucci confirmed on Twitter that they’ve just wrapped.

Eight brand new Coalition-themed episodes of the political satire are now waiting to be edited, starring the returning cast of Peter Capaldi, Chris Addison, James Smith, Joanna Scanlan and Rebecca Front. A broadcast date is yet to be confirmed, though Iannucci sent the following tweet, intimating that we should expect to see the new series on the BBC later this year:

“In answer to all your queries, though Thick of It filming is over, editing will take a few months. But all should be ready for Autumn x”

Chris Addison has also been updating his Twitter followers on the new show’s progress, though went about it in with his tongue firmly positioned in his cheek, spilling news on the new, explosive 3D CGI direction the series has taken, and announcing a Brian Eno cover of Bring Me Sunshine performed by Trent Reznor to be the show’s new theme tune. Sounds pretty good, if you ask us…
