British comedy pipeline – Going Postal


May not be immediately top of mind, but many long-time British comedy fans have e-mailed asking about Richard Coyle (Jeff,strange1Coupling). Having left the successful Steven Moffat series after the third season, Coyle starred in the one and only season of Strange, where he played an ex-priest who dedicated his life to hunting down demons. Coyle was defrocked after being implicated in a number of murders so he set his sights on uncovering the demons he claims were responsible. Sort of a Buffy in a paranormal world. Good series, but fell victim to the inner-workings of the BBC.

Terry Pratchett’s Going Postal

Up next for Coyle and set for broadcast later this month in the UK, Postal looks promising due to the top-notch cast headed by Coyle, David Suchet (Agatha Christie’s Poirot) and Andrew Sachs (Fawlty Towers). More behind-the-scenes stuff from Sky1 site here.
