Pulp Fiction

BBC releases pictures of Stephen Merchant and Jessica Gunning in series three of comedy-drama The Outlaws

From left to right, Stephen Merchant, Clare Perkins, Gamba Cole, Darren Boyd and Jessica Gunning stand outdoors. Gunning is facing the rest of them, who look apprehensive.

The show concerns a group of strangers brought together by community service. Among them are lawyer and social disaster Greg Dillard, played by Merchant, and Frank Sheldon, a former conman played by Christopher Walken (Pulp Fiction).

Series one saw the gang come into contact with a bag of money, drawing them into the world of the Dean (Claes Bang), a drug lord who wants his cash back. The second series sees the group go deeper into the world of crime, selling drugs themselves.
