Twenty Twelve continues on BBC2 this Friday with Episode 3 – Clarence House – airing at 10.00pm (11.05pm in Wales). The spoof documentary comedy series stars Hugh Bonneville, Jessica Hynes and Amelia Bullmore and is narrated by David Tennant.
From the BBC Media Centre:
Seb Coe is keen to make an announcement about the future of the Olympic Stadium post-Games and is pushing for a decision from the ODC about which bid – West Ham or Spurs – is the right one to back.
When new Head of Legacy Fiona Healey comes up with a persuasive case for West Ham, Kay finds herself staying up all night to produce a sustainability audit in support of the Spurs bid.
Clarence House has asked the ODC to look at ways of linking the Twenty Twelve Olympics with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee: is ‘Jubilympics’ the perfect branding solution?
Daniel arrives for his first day at work as Ian’s new PA, replacing Sally, who left for personal reasons at the end of episode two. Plus, budget cuts threaten the provision of adequate sanitary accommodation in the Athlete’s Village.
Written and directed by John Morton (People Like Us), Twenty Twelve sees the return of Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Jessica Hynes (Spaced), Olivia Colman (Rev), Amelia Bullmore (Ashes to Ashes), Karl Theobald (Green Wing) and Vincent Franklin (The Thick Of It), who are joined this series by two new characters, played by Samuel Barnett (Beautiful People) and Morven Christie (Monday Monday). Together they form the Olympic Deliverance team, paddling hard below the waterline to keep the London 2012 Olympics on track and on budget.
Twenty Twelve is produced by Paul Schlesinger and the executive producer is Jon Plowman.
