Join the RTS on Monday 24 January for this behind the scenes look at the BBC comedy The Mind of Herbert Clunkerdunk.
Watch the event from 1pm here:
Hosted by Emma Bullimore, the panel are creator and star Spencer Jones, Lucy Pearman, producer Ben Worsfield and director Martin Stirling.
Created by Bafta and Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominee Spencer Jones (Mister Winner, Upstart Crow) and produced by award-winning production company Tiger Aspect Productions (part of Banijay UK), the new (5 x 15’) series of The Mind Of Herbert Clunkerdunk - the original short of which was nominated for a Bafta - will see Jones’s titular alter-ego Herbert Clunkerdunk no closer to getting his life or his imagination under control. A simple visit to the mechanic turns into a full-blown western, a father-son fishing trip uncovers an underwater dystopia and he can’t get his tax return done because the stationery on his desk is performing the steamy, sensual stop-motion affair that would make a Bridgerton viewer blush.
Herbert’s wife Bobby Kindle (Lucy Pearman) becomes more powerful than you can possibly imagine when she’s supercharged by static electricity, his old neighbour Jonny Wallop (Dominic Coleman) is hunted by a creature of the night, and Herbert’s front door still talks to him (though this time, he’s got a new love interest, the Jessica Rabbit of windows, Sasha Window). Herbert is also joined by a host of new characters including ex-boxer Rusty (Shiloh Coke), Bobby’s old Uni friend Denim Jean (Felicity Ward) and, when he’s at his lowest point, a moment of pure(ish) Clarity (Vic Reeves).
