Porters Series 2

Porters series 2 premieres Thursday 14 March at 10PM on Dave. Tune in every Thursday to see the escapades at St. Etheldreda’s hospital – an upstairs/downstairs medical comedy. With wheels.

Daniel Mays joins this hilarious comedy series as Anthony De La Mer – is Anthony all that he says that is? Danny told The British Comedy Guide: Anthony is the new porter on the block. I would probably describe him as a jack-of-all-trades and he’d probably describe himself as that. He’s a very funny character hopefully, but he’s kind of a complete and utter bullshitter. He professes to everyone that he comes from a military background and he’s served lots of tours of duty in Basra and places like that. He’s very keen on psychology and will try to get in to peoples’ minds. He’s very popular around the hospital and doing deals and everything so he has this kind of sanctimonious egocentric air to him, which obviously lends itself to him hopefully being very funny. I personally think he just lives at home with his mum and it’s all just bullshit. But that’s a great thing and I think what we’ve tried to play with throughout the series is ‘do you believe him or do you not?’

Porters

Daniel Mays has joined the second series cast of Porters on Dave.

Exclusive from The Sun:

The Line Of Duty actor will play Anthony De La Mer in the second series of the sitcom with Edward Easton, whose character Simon thinks portering is a stepping stone to becoming a doctor – his true calling in life.

Daniel said: “I’m thrilled to be working on these hilarious scripts and joining the hugely talented cast of Porters series two.

“Not to mention re-teaming with the brilliant director Vadim Jean, who gave me my very first break, way back when.”

Porters was renewed for a second series in April for six episodes following it’s successful pilot run in 2018.

Starring: Daniel Mays, Edward Easton, Rutger Hauer, Susan Wokoma, Claudia Jessie, Jo Joyner, Sanjeev Bhaskar and Tanya Franks

Writer: Dan Sefton
Director: Vadim Jean

Lurking beneath St. Etheldreda’s hospital façade is a secret subterranean world. A world of endless corridors, party-throwing mortuary attendants, baton-happy security guards and legally blind laundry train drivers. This is the part of the hospital the public never gets to see – an underground community of hospital workers making the world above them run like clockwork(ish). Moving between the two worlds – the glue that binds everything together, the thin blue line between efficiency and chaos – are the porters. Whether it’s a urine sample, a complaining patient or a dead body – if it’s in St. Etheldreda’s, you’ll need a porter to move it.

Karma-loving, German born Tillman and black-market-Chinese-Viagra selling Frankie rule the porters’ roost. But then along comes Simon. To their great amusement, he thinks portering is just a temporary stepping-stone to what he sees as his true calling in life – being a doctor. He’s actually ambitious and to top it all, he’s about to fall in love with Lucy, a nurse (who all porters know don’t date porters). For Frankie, there’s only one cure for this heady cocktail of delusion. To wind him up like a clockwork mouse.

Because in this strange parallel universe, with the battle-hardened but exhausted Dr Kelly, hypochondriac, recidivist patient Mark, highly mischievous, gameplaying transplant surgeon Mr Pradeep, and ruthless NHS manager Jane Bison, there’s just one big goal for the porters below the decks: getting away with it.

So, lie back, hop on the trolley and enjoy the ride as our porters try to steer the course of least resistance through the topsy-turvy medical seas of life and death.

Porters. An upstairs/downstairs medical comedy. With wheels.

We will have more updates on Porters soon!
