Greg Davies is The Cleaner, new comedy for BBC1 Premieres Fri 10 Sep



The Cleaner is a new six part comedy for BBC One with the magnificent beast that is Greg Davies. He plays Wicky, a crime-scene cleaner – who after CSI has finished, mops up any grizzly remains. And you’d be amazed who you can run into at the scene of a crime…

In the first episode professional crime scene cleaner Wicky (Greg Davies) has headed to the suburbs to mop up after a particularly grizzly murder: your classic ‘housewife finally snaps’ stabbing-based incident.

It’s a pretty standard Wednesday for Wicky, who is working with great speed to finish in time to make it to his favourite curry night at the local. If only he would stop being interrupted by people unexpectedly dropping in on the crime scen – including a mysterious, heavily armed woman (Helena Bonham Carter).

Also starring Paul Chowdhry Shobu Kapoor, Zita Sattar. The Cleaner is written by Greg Davies and is based on Der Tatortreiniger created by Mizzi Meyer. It is directed by Tom Marshall and is a Studio Hamburg UK production.

The Cleaner Premieres Friday 10 September at 9.30pm on BBC One.
