THE CLEANER: GREG DAVIES COMEDY RENEWED FOR THIRD SERIES ON BBC ONE

Greg Davies's BBC comedy The Cleaner is set to return for a third series on BBC One, British Comedy Guide have revealed.



Davies played Paul ‘Wicky’ Wickstead, a state-certified cleaning technician with a very special field of work: as a crime scene cleaner he is responsible for the removal of any signs of death.



Wicky works for Shropshire-based cleaning contractors Lausen and is usually found, together with his baby-blue pickup truck, at crime scenes after the police have concluded their detective work.


Armed with chemicals, scrubbing brushes and cleaning rags, Wicky removes the gruesome mess at the scene of the crime. When carrying out his duties, he stumbles across the strangest of people: from the victim’s relatives and employers to occasionally even the murderers themselves.




Guest cast for the second series included Zoë Wanamaker (Britannia), Asim Chaudhry (People Just Do Nothing), Harriet Walter (This Is Going to Hurt), Simon Callow (Four Weddings and a Funeral), John MacMillan (House of the Dragon), Alex Lawther (The End of the F..ing World), Susannah Fielding (This Time With Alan Partridge), Roisin Conaty (After Life).



Plus Mark Lewis Jones (Outlander), Rudi Dharmalingam (The Split), Joshua McCord (The Tuckers), Louis Emerick (Zapped), Amy Morgan (Mr Selfridge), Charlie Rawes (Dune), Jemma Carlton (Maxine), Shakin’ Stevens, Rebecca Lee (Call the Midwife), Cassius Thompson and Zita Sattar returning in her role as PS Ruth Edwards.


The Cleaner (6x30') is based on the multi award winning long-running German comedy series Der Tatortreiniger (Crime Scene Cleaner) created by Ingrid Lausund and produced by subsidies of the Studio Hamburg Production Group.



The Cleaner is available on BBC iPlayer now.
