News: The End Of This Country Marked By Kerry Mucklowe Statue Visiting The Cotswolds

After three sublime series This Country sadly draws to a close this evening.

To celebrate the final episode of the multi-award winning comedy, BBC Three took a life-size statue of Kerry Mucklowe to the Cotswolds. Kerry has been immortalised deep in philosophical thought just like Rodin’s famous statue The Thinker.

The sculpture was unveiled by the writers and performers Daisy May and Charlie Cooper at the BFI Southbank back in January before it embarked on a tour of several Cotswolds locations including Cirencester, Broadward Tower, Bourton On The Water and filming locations such as the vicarage and the petrol station in and around Northleach.

"I've got enemies in South Cerney, I've got enemies in North Cerney, I've got enemies in Cerney Wick. I've got enemies in Bourton-on-the-Water. There's a tea rooms there and under the counter they've got a panic button and if I take one step inside, they can press that."

The video below shows the statue in all its glory, becoming the talk of the town as locals give their thoughts on how lifelike it looks (or not), take selfies and reflect on the series.

The final episode of BBC Three’s This Country airs tonight from 7pm on BBC iPlayer and 10.35pm on BBC One.
