On 17th April 2009, (today!) one of the greatest comedy characters ever created makes his triumphant return to our screens as Machiavellian spin doctor Malcolm The Enforcer Tucker is set loose on the big screen with the release of In the Loop.In the Loop is, for all intents and purposes, a big screen version of the greatest British comedy in recent memory The Thick of It. One of the prime reasons for it's greatness is Alastair Campbell based godfather of spin, the brilliantly sweary Malcolm Tucker played by Peter Capaldi in a performance for which he deserves award after award. To honour the release of In the Loop, Tuckers return and to celebrate the recent announcement from creator Armando Iannucci that The Thick of It will also indeed be returning - hopefully by the years end, I decided to put together a list of Malcolms greatest moments form the first season of The Thick of It and the two subsequent specials that we were treated to, and in the process hopefully try and highlight some of the wit and wisdom that this great man has to instil in us all. So to quote the man himself Come the fuck in, or fuck the fuck off and enjoy
