Apologies if I missed this being mentioned in another thread, however Steve Wright gave it a shout during his show today.

It seems Greg Davies has written, and will star in, a new upcoming comedy about a Crime Scene Cleaner which is set to also feature Helena Bonham-Carter and David Mitchell. More into here ....

Anything featuring Davies and Mitchell has gotta be good, though not sure about HB-C?

I've not got on with Greg Davies' previous sitcoms.

It's also based on a long running successful german sitcom.

I loved Man Down, but I have doubts this'll be as silly. Still, could be good though.

Yeah doesn't sound like a setup that would support many Milky Sues. It's still Greg Davies though, so I have high hopes.

Does he solve crimes at the same time? The combination of Germany and horribly dismembered corpses does seem to suggest lols aplenty. But Davies is usually good to great, and I can imagine him picking up a bloody hand and pulling a face. Pulling a face off the filing cabinet in which it has been brutally smashed. Ditto, basically.
