Gareth Tunley has a small but significant role in A Touch of Cloth, Charlie Brooker and Daniel Maier’s new spoof detective series, shown in two parts on Sky 1 over the recent Bank Holiday weekend.
If you missed it first time round, the whole show is repeated, with an extra bonus scene, at 10pm tonight on Sky 1, and is available on Sky Anytime now.
The series, starring John Hannah as DI Jack Cloth and Suranne Jones as DI Anne Oldman, has familiar scenes from may police dramas with plenty of visual in-jokes and dialogue that sounds convincing until you really listen to what they are saying.
There was a host of familiar faces appearing in the first case, including Geoff McGivern, who was last seen in Toast of London, and also appeared in Dead Boss and This is Jinsey.
Mr Brooker announced on Twitter that there are two more cases in the series to look forward to. The second one is already finished and the third is shooting now.
If you can’t wait to see more of A Touch of Cloth, the DVD is out on Monday 3rd September. Extras on the DVD include: The making of A Touch of Cloth, John Hannah interview, Suranne Jones interview, Charlie Brooker interview and The Writer’s Room.
As always the DVD is available to pre-order now from TVO store.
