Damned returns to Channel 4 tonight for a second series - but who's on the cast and what's it all about?
In a post-Brexit world, defined by a new government and legislation that no one can really fathom, Elm Heath Social Services have more crises to deal with that ever. Rose remains as irritable, chaotic and resentful as ever as she tries to juggle home, work, family and her far-too-present ex-husband.
Meanwhile Al, apathetically trying to surf a mid-life crisis, considers pastures new to inject some much needed excitement, and a new challenge, into his life. Martin is back full time and this time round he’s in charge so things might be about to change - but ever so kindly and slowly cause he’s a nice bloke. But will his new position of power bring out some unseemly dictatorial traits?
Jo Brand (Getting On, Going Forward) returns as Rose, Alan Davies (Jonathan Creek, QI) as Al and Kevin Eldon (Game of Thrones, Nighty Night) as Martin
Also starring Isy Suttie as Nat, Himesh Patel as Nitin, Morwenna Banks as Ingrid, Lolly Adefope as Mimi and Georgie Glen as Denise.
In tonight's second episode, Al (Davies) gets a surprise visit from Sean (Khalil Madovi), a boy with a transitioning parent and a troubled past. Ever-competitive Nitin (Patel) can't get over Martin (Eldon) being Mimi's (Adefope) mentor.
Denise's (Glen) brother Dennis (Clive Mantle) visits and takes a shine to Rose (Brand), much to Denise's fury. At the supermarket, Nitin bumps into Zak (Will Smith), the litigious snob whose wife has now left him - drunk in charge of the baby. And Ingrid (Banks) is excited about her 14-year-old foster son; it's not a problem that he stubbed out his cigarette in his 'welcome' cake.
Damned returns to Channel 4 on Wednesday 21th February at 10pm
