Twenty Twelve

10:00pm Friday 6 April on BBC TWO

Series two of the British Comedy Award-winning comedy Twenty Twelve continues tonight with the second episode of its four-part series.

Written and directed by John Morton (People Like Us), Twenty Twelve sees the return of Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey), Jessica Hynes (Spaced), Olivia Colman (Rev), Amelia Bullmore (Ashes To Ashes), Karl Theobald (Green Wing) and Vincent Franklin (The Thick Of It), who are joined this series by two new characters, played by Samuel Barnett (Beautiful People) and Morven Christie (Monday Monday). Together they form the Olympic Deliverance team, paddling hard below the waterline to keep the London 2012 Olympics on track and on budget.

In Episode 2, The Algerians issue a deadline of midnight for a solution to their demand for a Shared Belief Centre which faces Mecca, whilst the French are now threatening to pull out of the Games if a separate mosque is built. The team comes up with the idea of swapping the Shared Belief Centre with the Laundry Services Building which already faces Mecca, but to appease the Christians they’ll need to get an architect in.

Is it architecturally possible to design a building that will satisfy everyone, or is the entire Olympic Games about to unravel in front of their eyes?

Ian’s PA Sally has managed to get the water turned on in his new flat, but it won’t be fixed for a couple of days, so he accepts her offer of her spare room for the night.

Twenty Twelve is produced by Paul Schlesinger and the executive producer is Jon Plowman.
