The Thick Of It “Malcolm Tucker: The Missing Phone” iPhone App Hits App Store

An iPhone app has been created based on foul mouthed Malcolm Tucker from political comedy series The Thick Of It.

The “Malcolm Tucker’s Missing Phone” app allows users to read scripts written by series writers Armando Iannucci, Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, Tony Roche and Ian Martin. Additionally, users can also ‘hack’ into the phone of the angry spin doctor to read his expletive peppered e-mails and personal information.

“The Thick Of It has really passionate fans and is really well written,” said Dave Addey MD of Agant, co-creators of the app, to ElectricPig.

Addey said: “We would rather do fewer apps and catch people’s attention rather than push out lots. If you take the time to make an app with the full storyline, people really respond to it.”

When users open the app for the first time they can expect to be met with a “flurry of notifications” designed to simulate a scenario in which Tucker actually has lost his phone during a media storm.

The app costs £3.99 from the App Store.
