Still Game: Local Hero (Season 9 Premieres Fri 21 Jun on BBC One)



Local Hero: Jack, Victor and the rest of the Craiglang gang are back for the much-anticipated ninth – and final – series of Still Game, as the iconic comedy goes into retirement.

Created, written by and starring Ford Kiernan and Greg Hemphill, the final series celebrates growing old disgracefully as the riotous pensioners rail against everything modern life has to throw at them.

Debuting on BBC Scotland’s new digital channel and on BBC One later in the year, this first episode sees Craiglang hail a new internet sensation, while Jack and Victor decide it’s high time to get tech savvy.

When Isa is mugged Winston comes to her rescue, little realising his heroic deed is being filmed, turning him into an internet sensation. Winston initially downplays the attention, but when Methadone Mick points out the advantages of internet fame, he embraces his new-found celebrity status.

Meanwhile, Jack and Victor decide they won’t be yesterday’s men and buy themselves mobile phones.

When internet whizz Isa shows the friends how popular Winston is online, Jack and Victor turn their hand at creating viral videos. However, they soon discover the internet is a fickle master and fame fades fast.

This must-see final series reunites the most popular characters alongside Jack (Ford Kiernan) and Victor (Greg Hemphill) including Isa (Jane McCarry), Navid (Sanjeev Kohli), Boabby (Gavin Mitchell), Winston (Paul Riley) and Tam (Mark Cox). This episode also stars Scott Reid as Methadone Mick, Martin Compston and Gianni Capaldi as mobile phone salesmen and a cameo from presenter Des Clarke.

Still Game is a BBC Studios production for BBC Scotland and BBC One.

Airdate: Friday 21 June 2019 from 9.00pm-9.30pm on BBC ONE.
