Margaret Thatcher- the Conservative Prime Minister will be a significant part of season 4. Her leadership and relations with the Queen will be a major highlight. Sex Education actress Gillian Anderson is joining the cast to play the role.
The third season concluded in 1977, so the fourth season will most probably start with 1979 when Margaret Thatcher was elected. She was part of the office until 1990. So, we can expect to see a lot of the prime minister.
