It was previously announced that Doon Mackichan will reprise her role of Cathy in the sitcom for the new episodes.

Doon Mackichan said: “I have missed the Two Doors Down family very much so it’s a genuine delight to see Cathy bring her unique brand of community spirit back to Latimer Crescent. Beth – get a bottle open.”

Two Doors Down star passes away

Meanwhile the latest series of Two Doors is tinged with sadness after creator Simon Carlyle sadly passed away earlier this year. He was aged 48.

His manager Amanda Daviss said: “Simon was a wonderful person and a major comedic talent. He was much respected across the industry both for the quality of his writing and for being a kind, funny, supportive and nurturing collaborator. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go to his family, friends and colleagues.”

The BBC added: “Simon was a brilliant, funny, mercurial and magnificent human being. He had a microscopic fascination with what makes funny things funnier and we were so lucky to have known him. He was at the centre of all the work we made together and his loss will be felt profoundly by all of us.”

Two Doors Down originally began as a one-off pilot in 2013 before its first full series in 2016.
