The Thick Of It’s Jamie named Doctor’s assistant

After 25 minutes of pointless, self-aggrandising time-filling, the BBC finally announced that The Thick Of It’s Malcom Tucker, or Peter Capaldi as he is sometimes known, as the new Doctor Who.

Exciting news indeed. But what made it even more exciting was the announcement that Malcom Tucker’s assistant Jamie, played by fellow Scot Paul Higgins, is to be the new Doctor’s assistant in his universe-hopping adventures*.

As you can see from this clip of Jamie’s work with Malcolm, he has great experience for the role. And watch out for a prescient comment from Tucker at 38 seconds.

* This may not be true**

** This definitely isn’t true
