Dinosaur | Preview (BBC Three)

The six-part comedy series, created by Matilda Curtis and Ashley Storrie, was filmed and set in Glasgow and is the latest series from Two Brothers Pictures, the team behind Fleabag and the global hit thriller The Tourist.

Dinosaur follows Nina (Ashley Storrie), an autistic woman in her 30s, who adores her life living with her sister and best friend Evie. However, when Evie rushes into an engagement after only six weeks and makes Nina her maid of honour, Nina is floored. Forced to reconcile with her sister’s impulsive decision, Nina grapples with what this new challenge means.


Nina’s relationship with her sister isn’t the only change that she’s navigating, as she explores new possibilities in her palaeontology career and a potential new relationship in her own life with the introduction of kind-hearted Lee, who helps Nina to see these new challenges in a more positive light. As their relationship blossoms, we see that Nina helps Lee just as much as he helps her.

Dinosaur is a coming-of-age series exploring those moments of change we experience in the various relationships in our life including sisterhood, friendship and romance.

Ashley Storrie stars alongside Kat Ronney (The Royal Mob) as Evie. The two are joined by David Carlyle (It’s A Sin) as Bo, Lorn Macdonald (BEATS, The Lazarus Project, Bridgerton) as Lee and Danny Ashok (Roadkill, Capital) as Ranesh.


Also, part of the cast in supporting roles are Greg Hemphill (Still Game) as Ade, Sabrina Sandhu (Dodger, The Syndicate) as Amber, Ben Rufus Green (The Cockfields) as Shane, Jim Kitson (Land of Women) as Declan, Sally Howitt (River City) as Diane, Kate Dickie (Game of Thrones, Inside Man) as Cecily and Sanjeev Kohli (Still Game) as Sachin.


Dinosaur begins Tuesday 16th April at 9pm on BBC Three.
