Dolly Well’s in back on our screens in new crime comedy, The Outlaws
Premiering on BBC One on Monday 25th October, the series follows a group of misfits taking part in community service in Bristol.
Renowned actor Christopher Walken (Oscar winner for The Deer Hunter) plays ageing criminal Frank, with Dolly Wells (Doll & Em, Bridget Jones’s Diary) playing his daughter Margaret.
“Merchant has a knack for humanising his characters, no matter how crass they seem on the surface, and he hints at a deeper pain and embarrassment that gives this more heart and warmth than first appears…”
“…It gives each of the criminals a reason to run, and a reason to stay, and crucially, it made me care which route they chose. It may be built on types, but in the end, those types are proving to be a solid foundation.”
The Outlaws is out now and available to watch on BBC One and iPlayer
