The official details…
The weird and wonderful world of Psychoville returns to BBC Two for a brand new series to fright and delight in equal measure, taking mystery and intrigue to new heights.
The new six-part series of the award-winning comedy thriller follows on from the dramatic end of the first series, where the relationship between the seemingly unconnected characters was revealed as they were drawn back to the scene of their crime by a vengeful Mr Jolly.
In episode one the survivors of the explosion at Ravenhill Psychiatric Hospital are reunited to bury one of their number killed in the blast. But there is no rest for the wicked as new mysteries beckon.
The survivors of the blast are under surveillance by the mysterious Grace Andrews and her inept henchman, Kelvin. Meanwhile, Detective Finney starts to question the survivors in an attempt to find out more about Kenchington’s return from the dead and her hunt for her missing locket.
Co-creators and writers Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton once again take centre stage, playing a range of loveable grotesques in a world that only they could imagine.
Grace Andrews is played by Imelda Staunton, Kelvin by Daniel Ings and Detective Finney by Mark Bonnar. The all-star cast also includes Dawn French, Daniel Kaluuya, Daisy Haggard, Jason Watkins, Sarah Solemani, Jason Tompkins, David Bamber, Christopher Biggins, David Cann, Katherine Parkinson and Lisa Hammond.
