    scabrously funny, stuffed with great lines and a pleasure to watch Tom Sutcliffe
    The Independent


    the script still stings with richness and the gags fly in laugh-out-loud layers as the Con-Dem pairing rub against each other poisonously Alex Hardy

    nailed Cameron’s coalition as a Dad’s Army of incompetents led, although we never see them, by two Sgt Wilsons Andrew Billen

    It was both very funny and also the closest thing we've had to serious political drama on television for far too long Tom Sutcliffe
    The Independent


    in an hour of gloriously seat-squirming, self-serving comedy, The Thick of It nailed it... This was political farce played to perfection Keith Watson

    Not just sparkling, but also tense and claustrophobic. I even felt a bit moved... Satire at its very very best, a brilliant piece of television. Sam Wollaston

    The lines are so good I immediately watched the whole thing through again. Sam Wollaston
