With the second series of 'Veep' done, I got a hankering for another dose of acidic Armando Iannucci political satire. So I got out my DVDs of the two 'The Thick Of It' 2007 Specials and immediately realised it would be cool to have all 38 minutes of deleted material added back in for ease of watching. Whenever I watch these DVDs I almost always watch the 3 deleted material compilations along with the episodes since they are of equal quality. They were clearly originally removed to meet a strict 60 minute broadcast time and not because they were less funny.

So I'm cutting in all non-duplicated footage seemlessly back in to create two feature length films I'm calling...

THE THICK OF IT: FULL DISCLOSURE (PARTS ONE AND TWO)

Part One is in the bag and is a DVD-5. Here is the cover...

ORIGINAL LENGTH 59 MINUTES
FANEDIT LENGTH 71 MINUTES
22 DELETED SCENES REINCORPORATED


Here is a short teaser featuring some of the highlights from the reincorporated material from Part One... (WARNING! Naughty language, duh)


Part Two soon to follow. It will be longer at around 85 minutes, since there is more material to add back in.
