Ep 1/6

Monday 13 January



Uncle stars stand-up comedian and singer/songwriter Nick Helm as Andy, a dissolute out-of work musician who forges an unlikely alliance with his 12-year-old nephew Errol after being morally blackmailed into looking after him by his chaotic sister Sam – all on the day Andy was planning to kill himself.

Not a natural with either kids or responsibility, he tries to keep his new charge out of trouble while being knee-deep in it himself.

In Episode one, Mind The Cracks, the seemingly simple task of caring for his nephew spirals into a bizarre misadventure for the pair, involving a faked injury, a car crash, a visit to a gay club, a lot of lying, and some hard lessons in life.

Starring Nick Helm as Andy, Elliot Speller-Gillott as Erroll, Daisy Haggard as Sam, Con O’Neill as Val, Esther Smith as Melodie. Daniel Lawrence Taylor as Bruce, Sydney Rae Cressida White as Gwen. The series is written and directed by Oliver Refson and produced by Baby Cow Productions for BBC Three.
