The long awaited third series of Crackanory is just over a month away, and the full list of this year’s readers have been revealed.
For the uninitiated, the show features big name guests reading twisted tales – intercut with live action and animated segments which quite often star a bevy of TVO regulars, many of whom are also on the writing staff!
As we revealed back in July, new stories have been written by the likes of Kevin Eldon, Nico Tatarowicz, Holly Walsh and Toby Davies, whilst guest readers announced at the time were Back to the Future legend Christopher Lloyd, The Inbetweeners Simon Bird, plus comedy legends Sarah Millican, Greg Davies and Tamsin Grieg.
Now we can confirm that they will be joined by Richard Ayoade, Morgana Robinson, Jimmy Carr, Sarah Millican, Paul Whitehouse, Catherine Tate, Robbie Coltrane and Carrie Fisher (currently appearing in Catastrophe, and a little thing called Star Wars).
There’s currently no word of who will be appearing in the story segments, but across the first two series we saw the likes of James Bachman, John Willie Hopkins, Alex Kirk, Alice Lowe, Cariad Lloyd, Tom Meeten, Lucy Montgomery, Steve Oram, Tony Way and Katy Wix, whilst past episodes have been directed by Gareth Tunley and scored by Waen Shepherd, so we’re expecting to see some familiar faces once more.
Series three begins Monday 7th December at 10pm on Dave and in an unusual move, will air across that week at the same time until Saturday.
As ever, the yearning for a home media release of the whole series continues, but you can see a selection of promo images from the new series below.
