Avoidance | Preview (BBC One)

Romesh Ranganathan stars in this warm and bittersweet comedy series about a man with severe conflict avoidance issues, who is forced to change for the sake of his son.



Lisa McGrillis and Mandeep Dhillon. Jonathan and Claire are splitting up - well, technically Claire is splitting up with Jonathan who keeps insisting they just wait for the dust to settle.



But she is adamant, and most importantly, they need to tell their nine year-old son Spencer as soon as possible.



Jonathan, who is in denial, runs away with Spencer to stay with his sister Danielle and her wife Courtney to avoid confronting his problems.



Jonathan insists it’s just a blip, and Dan is frustrated by his denial. Meanwhile, Dan’s wife Courtney is not a fan of Jonathan’s, and when Dan softens towards her brother and tells him they’re there for him, Courtney’s reaction is not so emphatic.




Avoidance begins Friday 10th June on BBC One. Also starring Jessica Knappett.
