The comedy drama about friendship, ambition and gluttony… and the peculiar British distaste for other people’s success and how money can put even life-long friendships to the test, continues.
In Watto’s Mum, Watto (Nick Helm) is ecstatic when his errant mum Pauline (Julia Deakin) arrives back on the scene, seemingly oblivious to her son’s multimillion pound fortune and claiming to have made one all of her own.
The Gang are initially impressed. But Ewan’s (Jonny Sweet) growing suspicions lead him to stage an intervention that goes horribly awry. Casey (Mary McCormack) announces that her boss ‘the Emperor’ (Michael Brandon) is flying to London specifically to hear Josh (Jim Howick) and Leon’s (Samuel Anderson) pitch for the new game. Casey’s rattled when she learns that they have nothing to pitch, but Abi (Aimée-Ffion Edwards) surprisingly saves the day.
Watto, desperate to keep his mum at close quarters, does everything he can think of to make her stay.
