How Do You Stop Malcolm Tucker Swearing? [VIDEO]

Malcolm Tucker swearing is funny. He does it a lot. The comedy creation – based on former PM Tony Blair’s “spin doctor” Alistair Campbell – is the highlight of BBC Two comedy The Thick of It and its movie spin-off In The Loop, and is a horrendous grotesque, a spitting, threatening pig of a man with control issues. He’s wonderfully played by new Doctor Peter Capaldi.

This, of course, is the reason for many “jokes” about the Twelfth Doctor swearing and telling Daleks to “f&*^ off” and other such poorly considered attempts at humour (of the types we hope not to hear in the coming revived series of Dead Ringers, Jon Culshaw!). To those wanting inspiration for a really funny joke, the accompanying video will perhaps give you a few pointers in the art of making something funny, as opposed to just ripping it off and being unimaginative.

Incidentally, if you want the answer to the question above, it is simple: you cast him as the Doctor.
