* UnwantedAssistance: In retrospect, Malcolm's idea of turning Duggan's scrotum into a muppet and using it as the party mouthpiece would have worked a whole lot better than allowing Duggan to continue helping them, if only because the muppet might be able to function more effectively.

*** Malcolm wears a wedding ring for most of the run of the series; it's gone by the time he gives evidence to the Goolding Inquiry at the end of Series 4, although it's never referred to. More likely than not, it's Peter Capaldi having forgotten to take his wedding ring off while filming--as has happened in numerous other roles he's played as well. Might be a case of ThrowItIn.

** Steve Fleming's ill-advised [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/7371959.stm Josef Fritzl]] joke goes down like a lead balloon. When ''Olly'' is making the "eeeesh" face at you, you know you've gone too far.

** Olly isn't above these either. There's the time where mocks special needs children... in front of Glenn, who has a special needs child. And keeps going after Hugh calls him out. When he mocks Glenn over Malcolm punching him in Season Three, saying Glenn being "not technically a woman." Malcolm shoots Olly a DeathGlare and tells him to zip it.

** Same goes for Phil. In his first appearances during the first special (and the Opposition Extra that runs concurrent with the second special), he's an inexperienced and easily-jangled but fairly savvy worker with a desire to pony up to Peter Mannion and an obsession with the 80s. However, during the third series, he starts behaving ''very'' unprofessionally in his attempts to mess with Olly, and in the finale, he's judged useless enough to be delegated to coffee duties. By the fourth series, he's little more than a useless, immature "8-year-old trapped in the body of a 12-year-old," about whom every interaction ends with either a punchline about how much he loves sci-fi and fantasy or something about him sucking up to Peter; admittedly, the worst of his uselessness is partly due to the fact that he's no longer teamed up with Emma.

Of course, this being ''The Thick of It'', their relationship is ruthlessly exploited by the other characters as soon as it's acknowledged, to the point where by the end they're quite openly admitting that they would have broken up long before "if it had been up to them".
