"I use leaking to show up corruption, to show up hypocrisy, to show up idiocy and also the fourth horseman of the political apocalypse duplicity."
―Malcolm Tucker[src]


Malcolm Tucker is the former Media Adviser to the Leader of the Opposition. From Series 1 to 3 he worked as both the Chief Election Strategist and Director of Communications for Number 10, where he acted as the party's chief enforcer. He is a member of the Labour Party.

BackgroundEdit

PersonalEdit

Tucker was born in Scotland. Little is known about his personal life, although it is implied he is a self made man of humble origins. In the Specials he mentions he has a young niece, suggesting he has at least one sibling. It is subtly implied in Series 3 that he is particularly close to his niece as he has many children's drawings and paintings pinned up in his office.

He is a firm believer in meritocracy and a staunch opponent of classism and cronyism. Accordingly, his demeanour towards working-class characters or anyone deemed a social inferior is sincerely empathetic, gentlemanly and devoid of condescension.

ProfessionalEdit

He is the aggressive, profane and feared Director of Communications for the Government. He serves two main roles: acting as the Prime Minister's enforcer to ensure the cabinet ministers all follow the party line, and managing the government's crisis management PR- usually in the form of spin. He regularly uses smears or threats of violence to achieve his ends.

Series 4Edit

Following attempts to capitalise on a controversial DoSAC policy leading to the death of a mentally-unstable nurse, Douglas Tickel and an inquiry into rampant government leaking, he was prosecuted for illegal acquisition of Tickel's NHS records and perjury during the Goolding inquiry, which resulted in the end of his political career and his final downfall.
