A teaser for the first episode of the new series shares: “Wicky faces the ultimate test of self-control: a job in a pub, after he’s promised his new girlfriend he’ll stay off the booze. But resisting a pint is the least of his challenges once he meets hard-bitten landlady Lisa and muscle-bound barman Cuddle.

“Wicky is there to clean up the devastation left by a lethal brawl, but as a web of romantic and criminal intrigue slowly unravels around him, Wicky realises there’s more to this job than just cleaning up blood (and the occasional severed human ear).”
