duncan clare

And here’s the other reason I cast Clare Holman aka Dr Hobson as the ex-Mrs Tucker in my own personal headcanon

Because if that’s not mid-1990s Malcolm threatening wrangling a hack pack, I don’t know what is.

(This is actually from the first time Peter and Clare were tv married in Giving Tongue where she was in fact a newly elected MP.  Which, in terms of headcanon, could open up entirely new planes of speculation about Malcolm’s life before Downing Street – but no, I think I’ll stick with Dr Hobson.)
