He might be out of power, but Malcolm Tucker is still as foul-mouthed and manipulative as ever.
Formerly Director of Communications at Number 10, Malcolm wields the dark arts of media manipulation and political coercion like a spider spins a web - all the time and using a lot of sticky effluvium. It it rumoured that he was originally a journalist, but since finding his true calling, he has become what he does.
Alternately charming and scary, he is utterly loyal to the party, and terrifying to his enemies (and most of the people on his side, if truth be told). The last two years have not been good ones for Malcolm, as he has slowly come to terms with being out of Government, but slowly and surely he is drawing up his plans to return to power.
Played by Peter Capaldi
