News: Transmission Date Confirmed For New Count Arthur Strong Series

BBC1 has confirmed the transmission date for the new series of sitcom Count Arthur Strong.

It will return to BBC1 on May 19 at 8.30pm.   .

The seven-part series is once again written by Steve Delaney, who plays Count Arthur, and Graham Linehan. The regular cast all returns. There is Michael (Rory Kinnear), Eggy (Dave Plimmer), John The Watch (Andy Linden) and cafe owners Bulent (Chris Ryman) and his sister Sinem (Zahra Ahmadi). There is also a new customer, cheerful Birdie (Bronagh Gallagher).

The new series includes a visit to a safari park, an evening in a haunted house, amnesiac detective work, strange religious organisations, gangsters, putting the old band back together and in the first episode a "Soupover” - which is apparently like a sleepover, but with much more soup.

Count Arthur Strong: The Sound Of Mucus is on tour until June 23. Details here
