Dave Podmore's Toughest Test

It's Ashes time. Will Pod’s memoir spark the end of his reign as England's anti-hero? Stars Christopher Douglas. From 2015.

It's Ashes time (again) and the world's sleaziest cricketer Dave Podmore is here with his explosive memoir DP. But, in doing so, he's putting at risk his budding career as motivational coach for the England women's team.

Pod's especially proud of emerging star player Danniii (yes, three i's), until he realises his precious second-hand car lot endorsements have a new competitor who's young enough to still be discovered on the Borrowash roundabout at 3am with her pants on her head.

Is Pod's long reign as England's anti-hero finally over? And has he burned his lucrative corporate advertising bridges for good?

It's Pod's toughest test yet.

Starring Christopher Douglas as Dave Podmore.

With Lewis Macleod, Andrew Nickolds, Andy Hamer and Nicola Sanderson.

Scripted by Christopher Douglas, Andrew Nickolds and Nick Newman.
