Foiled again!

Third series for BBC Radio Wales sitcom

BBC Radio Wales sitcom Foiled has been renewed for a third series.

Guest stars in the next series of the comedy – set and recorded in a Tonypandy hairdresser – include Sir Derek Jacobi, Miles Jupp, (pictured)  and Ralf Little.

In a statement writers Beth Granvile, who also stars, and David Charles said: ‘We’re lucky to have such an incredible cast for Foiled. We say luck, but it's more a combination of audacity and really good manners. 

‘Beth met Ralf Little on an NHS march and she met Derek Jacobi while working as a humble production assistant. 

‘Actors do Foiled because they believe in the scripts and they believe in the team putting it together. That's a lovely thing to remember and makes us want to write the best we can for them.

Foiled – which began as an Edinburgh show in 2016 –  also stars David Oakes, Beth Granville, Garnon Davies and Stephanie Siadatan.

The new four part-series starts on Monday September 9. It is produced by Tom Price for The Rubber Chicken.
