Malcolm Tucker is the one of the main protagonists/antagonists of the BBC political black comedy show The Thick of It and its film spin-off In the Loop. Tucker serves as the spin doctor and political enforcer for the Prime Minister of Great Britain, and is known as one of the most feared political fixers in the business.

His position in the British government is communciations director.

Malcom is portrayed by actor Peter Capaldi (who also plays Cardinal Richelieu in The Musketeers and is currently the Twelfth Doctor in Doctor Who).


Description

Malcolm has silvery-blue eyes with light brown (later grey) hair and speaks with a Scottish accent. Throughout the series, he is almost always wearing a suit though sometimes he wears a white fleece.

Personality

Malcolm is incredibly irritable and short tempered, frequently exasperated when the members of DOSaC costantly make mistakes that he subsequently has to fix, as well as spewing threats and insults to anyone who has angered him. He acts as the Prime Minister's enforcer, ensuring that all cabinet ministers follow the party line. 

Despite his short temper, Malcolm is shown to be more capable of long term thinking that the other characters in the series, and while Hugh Abbot describes his schemes as borderline Machiavellian, they are more often than not aimed at a common good; otherwise friendly character, such as Ollie Reader, are shown to be more self-serving and egotistical by comparison. At the same time, Malcolm is implied to be a self-made man with humble origins, and always addresses anyone deemed socially inferior in a gentalmanly and empathetic manner devoid of condescension.
