Coming of Age clues about series 3
Tim Dawson writes:
I think I should begin by thanking everyone who watched Series 2 for their wonderfully warm reaction to the show. I'm delighted it was so popular. Apparently Joe Tracini can't leave his house now without receiving shouts of 'Balamory' from excitable teenagers, excitable adults and disturbed toddlers.
It's still a few months until pre-production begins - that's when the producer, director, actors and production team come on board to start making the series proper. But I've been writing for about three months now, and I'm deep into the new series. So what can I tell you? Despite the rumours on Facebook, all the gang will be coming back. (Hooray!) But there's more...because this year they're going to be joined by duh duh duuuuh...
...a new character!
Now I can't tell you her name, mainly because I keep changing it (any suggestions please put them below) but she's seventeen, cute and has a big secret. Plus she hasn't been cast yet, so any aspiring actors out there get stretching those thespian muscles boys! Oops, I let out her secret - or did I? No I wouldn't do that - or would I? I should stop this joke now... or should I?
As well as the arrival of X, there's a lot in store for our heroes at Wooton College. Jas tries to move on from Ollie, DK acquires a stalker and for the first time Matt and Chloe face a problem which threatens their entire future together - the giraffe of fire!! There's jealousy, heartbreak and treachery as well as our usual raucous mix of comedy sex, outrageous visuals, special guest stars, raps, knob jokes and witty one liners all building to a thrilling climax.
And what will that thrilling climax be? Obviously I can't say. But what I can say is this will be the best series of Coming of Age yet. I can't wait to make it. And I can't wait for you to see it.
Tim Dawson is the creator and writer of Coming of Age.
