Against a backdrop of a village in celebration, a private tragedy forces Georgie (Ciara Baxendale) to make a difficult decision... Fundamentally, it's a drama about saying goodbye and looking forward to the future. Having ended Season 2 in 2016 with an apocalyptic comedy about burying forty dead clowns, I wanted to ease off the throttle with the end of Season 3 and write a quieter and more reflective script that dealt sensitively with the death of a loved one. For once, there is little active conflict between characters, with the greatest battle raging within Georgie herself: not only the practical consideration of who should provide her grandmother's funeral - her friends at Funn Funerals, or the much more capable Eric Chapman - but also the many mixed emotions we all experience when somebody we love is no longer there.
Will there be a Season 4? The team will be discussing that in the coming months - but for now we still have one episode left to release! Our Summer Special, Rudyard Ruins Summer, or, A Handful of Sand by myself and Alex Lynch, will be available on Thursday 21st June. This full length episode sees our main characters stranded on a desert island, and will be made freely available to all of our Kickstarter backers, whilst also being available to purchase online via the website (as is our 2016 Christmas Special).
