The Midnight Gang (BBC-1 26 Dec 2018, Alan Davies, David Walliams)



When the clock strikes midnight most children are fast asleep – but for the Midnight Gang the journey is just beginning.

Based on the original book by David Walliams, The Midnight Gang tells the tale of a young boy called Tom who finds himself in the Children’s Ward at Lord Funt Hospital after being hit on the head by a cricket ball.

Once Tom is moved to the children’s ward, he discovers The Midnight Gang, a secret gang of children who go on midnight adventures in the hospital making dreams come true.

When Tom’s wicked headmaster turns up at the hospital to take him back to his boarding school, Tom must find a way to stay in the hospital to fulfil one final adventure for The Midnight Gang.
