Armando: There is another side that I kind of like in this episode which is that Malcolm out of office, Malcolm in casual wear going to the BBC —that’s the actual BBC there—and just, and Peter playing it differently. Peter playing it as if he’s had, as if he’s been crying for forty-eight hours and he’s now stopped, but he’s sort of exhausted and his face looks a little bit tired, but he can’t, there’s no energy. The energy’s gone out. It’s all a quieter, kind of subdued Malcolm.
Jesse (or Adam): And again the civvies, just sending out all the wrong signals. You just feel so uncomfortable watching him out of his environment.
The too-big shirt collar really adds to the sense of how small and uncertain Malcolm is when he’s just himself, without the armor of Downing Street authority.
I think Malcolm’s talking about me, but I’m perfectly ok with that.
No one could argue that those wouldn’t be very surprising dates indeed.

Adam Tandy: We made him run down—
Chris Addison: That’s the funniest thing ever.
James Smith: Wonderful.
Adam Tandy: — Whitehall twice.
Chris Addison: All the clever satire aside, there is nothing funnier than Capaldi running.
Adam Tandy: And he really, really gave it everything he had. It was the last thing we shot and I don’t think we could have shot anything else that day.
