No Angel

Broadcast: 18th December, 2010

RICKY TOMLINSON and MARTINE McCUTCHEON starred in a new sitcom for BBC Radio 2, written by Andy Lynch with David Morley.

The All-Star cast also saw CLIVE ANDERSON playing an egomaniac chat show host, while Mock The Week’s ANDY PARSONS appears as a policeman. And fresh from E4’s hit comedy series ‘The Inbetweeners’, EMILY HEAD took her first radio role.

When Ricky’s scruffy Scouser “Leo” accosts Martine’s careerist radio producer “Katherine” in the street, sparks fly. Convinced she’s being stalked, Katherine just can’t shake him. And she doesn’t get any sympathy from Clive Anderson’s character “Scott”, who wants know “why don’t I have a stalker? I’m the star!”

But how does Leo know so much about Katherine? Is there more to this hairy old feller than meets the eye? And will Scott’s crazy scheme for beating the traffic come off, or just land him in jail?
Andy Lynch’s credits include BBC 1’s “The Street” and acclaimed comedy dramas “Badfellas” and “A Question of Royalty” for BBC Radio 4.

Johnny Vegas and Ricky Tomlinson star as bungling losers who look as though they might, for once, win the day.
