THE MIND OF HERBERT CLUNKERDUNK AXED BY BBC AFTER TWO SERIES
The Mind Of Herbert Clunkerdunk, the BBC Two comedy series from Spencer Jones, will not be returning for a third series, its been revealed.
Created by Bafta and Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominee Spencer Jones (Mister Winner, Upstart Crow) and produced by award-winning production company Tiger Aspect Productions, The Mind Of Herbert Clunkerdunk follows Jones’s titular alter-ego Herbert Clunkerdunk.
In the second series, a simple visit to the mechanic turns into a full-blown western, a father-son fishing trip uncovers an underwater dystopia and he can’t get his tax return done because the stationery on his desk is performing the steamy, sensual stop-motion affair that would make a Bridgerton viewer blush.
Commenting on the first series commission, Spencer said: "To be given a full series for the BBC is one of my ultimate dreams come true. I was so chuffed to get it...
"However, that feeling has now slowly faded away and I’m absolutely bricking it. But I’m going to use the fear to push me to make this the best thing it can be. I’ve got a brilliant team of highly skilled people around me, so if Clunkerdunk ain't 'the nuts', then I can safely say it is completely my fault. How terrifying."
The decommission was originally reported by The Mail Online. Previous episodes are available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
