Malcolm is a veritable pop-culture encyclopaedia; when he's not shouting at people, he reads voraciously and watches a lot of movies and television, and he also absorbs a lot by osmosis from his family members, especially the youngsters. There's also the "Zeitgeist tapes" (from The Thick Of It S1.02):
Malcolm: This is important stuff, Hugh! Right, we do a weekly digest for the Prime Minister: we boil down the week's television, cinema, music, so on.

Ollie: The Zeitgeist tapes.

Malcolm: Exactly, the Zeitgeist tapes. EastEnders highlights, choice bits from all the reality shows, 10 seconds of music videos, that kind of thing.

Hugh: That's why the PM always looks so clued-up! I always thought he was genuinely quite with it.

Malcolm: No, no, he's as bad as you; he uses phrases like "with it" as well. Right, I'm gonna bike that over to Terri; watch it, ok? And listen, when you talk to Angela Heaney, remember to stick the boot into Hewitt. I'm putting it about that Cliff offered him two free weeks at his Tuscan villa for that piece, ok?

Hugh: Ten-four, daddy-o!

Malcolm: Hey, hey, hey, this is serious! You've got 24 hours to sort out your policy on EastEnders, right? Or you're for the halal butchers!

[Ollie does an imitation of the EastEnders opening music]

Malcolm: Even he knows.

So he will generally be inclined to fourth-wall the shit out of the people that he recognises. If I don't see a comment from you here, I'll go with what's in the community Fourth Wall Permissions post.

Also, Malcolm swears a lot. A lot. If you don't want your character sworn at ... probably they shouldn't interact with him. But if you don't mind, let me know if there are any restrictions or anything else noteworthy.

So, fill out the following bit and post in a comment below.



Also, please feel free to fourth-wall the hell out of Malcolm and to confuse him with other Capaldi characters (Frobisher from Torchwood, Sid's dad from Skins, even Caecillius from DW ep "The Fires of Pompeii").

Character name: Svetlana
I [do with restrictions] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character. (Choose one)
Notes and restrictions: Book only if you're wanting to.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: Why didn't the skeleton cross the road...............he didn't have the guts!
Special swearing considerations: She won't like it but...meh. Go for it.

Character name: Uhura
I [do] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character. (Choose one)
Notes and restrictions: Go for it!
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: That's all I've got
Special swearing considerations: She has to listen to Paddy drop the f-bomb every other word...she can handle it.

Character name: Iago
I [do] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character. (Choose one)
Notes and restrictions: None! Go wild.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: I don't like Brazil nuts...
Special swearing considerations: Go ahead. Teach him colorful ways to insult people. It'll be fun!

Character name: Pollux
I [do] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character. (Choose one)
Notes and restrictions: I'd rather him not say it to him...but he can certainly know.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: I don't know. Pollux is such a creeper weirdo.

Character name: Donny Donowitz
I do give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character.
Notes and restrictions: I think it'd be funny? Any and all you want to go with works for Donny. Recognizing him as that director who does those horror films would be fine - if Malcolm knows his Tarantino he's more than welcome to fourth wall the hell out of Donny too.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: And by great, you mean really half-assed and not a plot at all, then....no, I still got nothing.
Special swearing considerations: ahahahahaha swearing is fun. Donny won't see what the big deal is.

Character name: Angelica Sexby
Notes and restrictions: Right. Since he'd risk fourth-walling himself (?) and possibly giving a few people nervous breakdowns, I was thinking not mentioning The Devil's Whore might be good. I was going to let him recognize Andrea Riseborough....but we'll play this one by ear. (aka ask Kim what she thinks because she's all-knowing)
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: She's probably going to think he's the King/some kind of distant relative of said King. I imagine she's pretty conditioned to bowing, so that'll suck for a bit.

And then she's gonna stay far, far away from him.
Special swearing considerations: Nope. Do it up.

Why is she supposed to ask me?

My advice is... You can do it to Sexby, because he's historical enough to be a little confused/a little flattered, and has facetwins just to think 'John Simm' is another one of them, but I wouldn't pull it on Angelica. And Sexby, if informed, would tell you the same.

Watching yourself having your head chopped off is kinda not-fair. :D

Character name: Edward Sexby
I [do] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character.
Notes and restrictions: Please, recognise him as John Simm - I'm okay with him being fourth walled, because he's actually from history. And probably won't follow if you accuse him of being from a period drama. If you accuse his wife of not existing, though, he'll be pissed. I would say, though, if he's going to do it, just for Sexby's sanity's sake, keep away from the scenes which nobody-else-knows-about (the *cough* not quite rape scene/the drag scene/his hallucinations) - this might get your lights punched out/send him into a man brood, depending on the circumstances.

But yeah, he's got a much more liberal fourth wall thing than Angelica because he is ze-historical one.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: He will have an inexplicable desire to arrest you and chop your head off.

Also. for shits and giggles. if we can fit in the exchange 'on who's authority?' *drawing of a sword* 'that's a very good authority' (probably with more fucks, but hey) - we both get a bucket of bonus points.

Special swearing considerations: please, this guy can take it.

Character name: Paddy Maguire
I [do with restrictions] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character.
Notes and restrictions: Sean Gilder's been in a few British-teevee-things. Including Life on Mars. And...part of me imagines Malcolm might actually have watched Shameless. Which gives me a head scratching issue, as I never EVER thought this would come up.

Basically, Malcolm's free to mention whatever the hell he likes. But a-word-of-warning: if you mention any of the seriously messed up stuff? You'll get punched. If you mention his dad and the IRA connection, or his heroin addiction/the circumstances surrounding it? He'll kill you. No, really, he will. And will come up with an almost malcolm-esque creative way to describe doing so. So... um, I'm okay with it being done, but the consequences will be MASSIVE if he really pushes the fourth wall button. It does give a new definition to being fourth walled to death, though.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: MORE SWEAR OFFS. This time, incomprehensible accent club style.
Special swearing considerations: Do it. A lot.

Character name: O'Brien
I [do] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character. (Choose one)
Notes and restrictions: Everything. Do it. Recognise Richard Burton, and... well, it's 1984. He's there TO be fourth walled. Feel free to throw in some reality tv jokes that would really confuse O'Brien too.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: See above. The Big Brother connection, m'ladies.
Special swearing considerations: O'Brien will just think your self-control is deficient. And then slip up and swear back at you and hate himself for a few hours.

Character name: Doctor John Hix/Captain Swing
I [do] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character. (Choose one)
Notes and restrictions: My Discworld guys come together - if the Mr Malcolm has read them, then go for it. Hix is crazy-recent, though, and Swing is from just-the-one-book, but they're prette distinctive guys. So I've got no problem. Hix will shrug and decide it's Quantum.

And if you do fourth wall Swing? Telling him about Vimes/Keel would be fabulous. Mainly because his anger at the Doctor would be legendary.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: This is an effort after four guys. Also, Brad Dourif and Al Pacino are fair game - hell, call Swing Wormtongue and see what happens. :D
Special swearing considerations: Swing can live, and so can Hix. :D

I AM NOT REDOING THAT. LIVE WITH THE BOLD.

Character name: Howie. my laziness. She abounds.
I [do] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character.
Notes and restrictions: Do all of it if you like. Even feel free to make Nic Cage jokes. He will not like it one bit if you try to use it against him, mind, but it can be done. To be honest, surprised it hasn't happened already.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: mess with him. He's from cult horror.
Special swearing considerations: He will hate-this-so-much, you can't even begin to describe. His offence. Will be HUGE.

Character name: Angel
I [do] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character. (Choose one)
Notes and restrictions: Go crazy all over the place. Angel's used to it. Recognize him as David Boreanaz too.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: Fourth-walling Angel is rarely not funny.
Special swearing considerations: Nope. He won't like/understand it, but do it anyway.

Character name: Elle Bishop
I [do] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character. (Choose one)
Notes and restrictions: This has never happened to Elle before, so be prepared for some confusion on her part, but she'll get over it.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: Mistake her for Veronica Mars I dare you :|
Special swearing considerations: None.

Character name: Logan Echolls
I [do with restrictions] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character. (Choose one)
Notes and restrictions: Please don't tell him his future (anything past mid-s2), that's all.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: I got nothin'.
Special swearing considerations: Nope. Logan'll cuss right back.

Character name: Shosanna Dreyfus
I [do not] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character. (Choose one)
Notes and restrictions: Go ahead and recognize the actress, but please no telling Shosanna's she's fictional. I'm really not sure how she'd respond to that.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: nonexistent :c
Special swearing considerations: She'll probably be offended, but go ahead and do it anyway.

Character name: Temperance Brennan
I [do with restrictions] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character. (Choose one)
Notes and restrictions: Please don't tell her she's a TV show character. However, the TV show is based on a book series, and I'm fine with him recognizing her from that, or recognizing the actress.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: Nope.
Special swearing considerations: Er. Malcolm might get a lecture on, like, cultural swearing trends or something idek.

Character name: Adam Monroe
I [do with restrictions] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character.
Notes and restrictions: Has he watched Heroes? Then yes, you can fourth wall him. Adam will just be like WHATEVER.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: If he's watched Heroes, you can totally call him out the fact that David Anders is SO American.
Special swearing considerations: Nada!

Character name: Harvey Dent
I [do] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character.
Notes and restrictions: I'd prefer the comics route instead of the movie route, simply because The Dark Knight, while very popular, was fairly recent.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: I dunno, ask him about Gilda or something.
Special swearing considerations: Zilch!

Character name: The Fourth Doctor
I [do] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character.
Notes and restrictions: He's Four. Of course you can fourth-wall him.
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: Tom Baker (Four) was totally married to/dating Lalla Ward (Romana). Considering that Four's default is OH GOD GIRL COOTIES, that makes for potential fun. And, of course, the obligatory 'Doctor? Doctor who?' joke.
Special swearing considerations: Four frowns upon cussing! And by that I mean do it.

Character name: James McCullen aka DESTRO
I [do with restrictions] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character.
Notes and restrictions: Cartoons/comics ONLY. You can't do shitty movie canon as it's insanely recent. Also, he doesn't go by Destro on the Barge but it's pretty easy to figure out he's Destro (gee, who's buddies with Cobra Commander and makes out with the Baroness?)
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: Idk, Eccleston face? Whatever.
Special swearing considerations: Knock yourself out.

PS. Might wanna take out the extra < b > in the second line of the form.

Character name: The Doctor (Fifth)
I [do] give permission to Malcolm to fourth-wall this character.
Notes and restrictions: He can recognise whatever the eff he wants 8D Five might get uncomfortable and ask him to stop referencing stuff from the future 'cause time knowledge/paradox/whatnot, but still. Feel free to point him out as Tristan Farnon, Albert Campion, Dr. Daker, whatever floats his boat. xD
I have a great idea for a plot or a joke and it is: Jetpacks. I have NO idea.
Special swearing considerations: Five's feathers will get ruffled, but he can take it for a little while. Just expect him to be insufferably polite in return until he gives up and goes silent in a fit of nice-guy rage, or gets snarky. :D
