Matt Berry makes a welcome return to our screens in Year of the Rabbit, a brand new hilarious Channel 4 comedy set in Victorian London. Following its TV run will be available on DVD and digitally to download on 22 July and we have 25 DVDs up for grabs thanks to Acorn Media International.
This side-splitting six-part series turns the detective genre on its head with a brand new crime fighting trio, that sees Matt Berry’s (Toast of London), Detective Inspector Rabbit, teaming up with Freddie Fox (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) and Susan Wokoma (Chewing Gum). They are joined by a stellar line-up of great British acting talent including Line of Duty favourites Keeley Hawes(Bodyguard) and Craig Parkinson (Misfits), plus Sally Phillips (Smack The Pony), Jill Halfpenny (Three Girls), Alun Armstrong (The Cane) and Paul Kaye (Wanderlust).
Detective Inspector Rabbit is a hardened booze-hound who’s seen it all, his new partner is hapless and by-the-book…when they’re called in to investigate a local murder, they are joined by the lewd, but insightful adoptive daughter of the chief of police, she’s also the country’s first female officer. Together, the mismatched team must fight crime while rubbing shoulders with street gangs, crooked politicians, Bulgarian princes, spiritualists, music hall stars and the Elephant Man.
