Two Doors Down returning for second series

BBC Two - Two Doors Down

Responding to the success of its recent debut series, the beeb has announced that Scottish comedy Two Doors Down will return to BBC Two for a second series.

Starring Arabella Weir, Alex Norton, Elaine C Smith, Doon Mackichan, Sharon Rooney, Jonathan Watson, Jamie Quinn and Harki Bhambra, the sitcom follows three sets of neighbours in suburban Glasgow.

“It’s beautifully written with the cream of Scottish comedy talent on board, and audiences across the UK have taken it to their hearts.” – Shane Allen, Controller of Comedy Commissioning

Likened to The Royle Family, the comedy was originally aired as a stand-alone pilot on New Years Eve 2013 and with an audience of three million viewers, it saw off competition from a screening of Abba musical Mamma Mia on ITV and a festive edition of Alan Carr’s chatshow on Channel 4 – a likely factor in it becoming a series.

Filming will commence on six new episodes in mid-August at the BBC’s Dumbarton Studios in Glasgow. The recently-concluded first series was hailed as a ‘gem’ and ‘genuinely hilarious’ by critics.
