BBC Radio Wales renews Bravo Two Charlies

Second series for police comedy

BBC Radio Wales has ordered a second series of its police comedy Bravo Two Charlies, after it became one of the most downloaded Welsh programmes on the BBC Sounds app.

It stars Inbetweeners actor Martin Trenaman, who co-writes the scripts with Matt Lees. 

In a statement, they said: ‘We’re delighted that the grown-ups upstairs at Radio Wales have let us send our Charlies out on another six shifts.  The stakes are higher this time - there's going to be a high-speed chase, a love story, a dramatic rescue, a wedding and a kidney.’

The cast also includes Rhys ap Trefor, Laura Dalgleish, Rhian Green, Sion Pritchard, Simon Holland Roberts and Sarah Breese.

Producer Steve Doherty, of Giddy Goat Productions, said: ‘We’re so happy to be making shows about North Wales in North Wales. This series we aim to record on location in Llandudno.’ 

Bravo Two Charlies will return to BBC Radio Wales in the spring of 2020.

Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
