The Thick Of It – The Missing DoSAC Files – Paperback Out Tomorrow

Tomorrow (4th November for those without a calendar), is the official release date for the new Thick Of It book, entitled ‘ The Missing DoSac Files’.

The book comprising of a selection of internal emails and correspondences between the characters of The Thick Of It. It is written by the writers of the series including BlueNun favourites Armando Iannucci and Jesse Armstrong, so it should actually be funny and not another crap sitcom related book (like i imagine Little Britain have released before Christmas for the last 6 years).

You can read some exclusive extracts from the book here:

Peep Show Start Filming Series 1 Million

Robert Webb has recently revealed on his Twitter page that He and compardre David Mitchell are returning to the sitcom for the 8th series, filming starts this week.

Webb tweeted “Last column before 7 weeks off to make Peep Show. Will try to do updates ie ‘just did another scene’, ‘am tired’ etc”

Peep Show which is unofficially Britain’s longest running good sitcom (Unofficially because I am guessing, and/or might be forgetting another long running good sitcom) hasnt given us a bad series to date despite going on for over 7 years now, lets hope the trend continues for writers Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong.

Series 7 is due to broadcast on November 26th of this year.
