In the second episode of the brand-new series, we meet the extremely proud and self-important author, Terence Redford as he tries to write his latest masterpiece.

 He is finding it difficult to complete it though, partly because of his writer’s block, and partly because his grandmother just spontaneously combusted in the living room.

In comes Wicky (Greg Davies), the professional crime scene cleaner. He arrives to clean up the scene and make heads or tails of the incident and butts heads with David Mitchell’s Redford, who could use a nice helping of perspective.

The Cleaner – Friday at 9.30pm on BBC One
