Series Summary
"The Thick of It" satirizes the inner workings of modern British government, with the focus on the fictitious Department of Social Affairs and Citizenship, a rather broad title that allows many political themes and viewpoints to be introduced. The department is run by an appointed minister, one who of course is depicted as bumbling, overmatched and out of touch with the public.
