From the British Comedy Awards after show. Rebecca doesn’t seem convinced there will never be more The Thick of It, just no more series. Peter makes a terrible pun and suggests TTOI doesn’t necessarily need the same actors (as in the two of them) to function. Rebecca basically (and so very correctly) calls him a crazy person for even suggesting TTOI could possibly work without Malcolm.
They are of course adorable together and while real-life Peter is the anti-Malcolm, I kind of get the sense Rebecca Front really is Nicola, at least the Nicola in Nicola’s mind who is not a walking disaster area.
I don’t want to be THAT PERSON, but…
If this project Rebecca wants to work with Peter on pans out, please be making out. Thanks.
"As head housekeeper, Mrs Hughes and Mr Carson, the Butler, have a relationship founded on mutual respect and decorum. But Mrs Hughes may turn out to be a little more progressive than her counterpart.
“They still have that nice warmth and respect between them but he still is very much Mr Play-it-by-thebook. Whereas Mrs Hughes is more progressive, in as much as a head housekeeper ever can be. I mean she is still in her corset but you know, apart from that, I think she is a little more of a lefty than he would ever consider right or proper."
