Karen Gillan In A Touch Of Cloth III

No sooner has the second double episode set of Charlie Brooker’s crime drama spoof A Touch of Cloth finished; up pops the trailer for the third featuring none other than Amy Pond herself, Karen Gillan.

Taking the scattershot humour of the likes of The Naked Gun and Airplane! and applying it liberally to the over-saturated crime drama genre, A Touch of Cloth casts the kind of familiar faces you’d find in the likes of Rebus and Messiah and drops them into a universe where you’re likely to come across cardboard cut-out police officers, dogs in the interrogation room and strangely specific posters in oddly prescient places.

Karen will be making her debut as new recruit, Kerry Newblood alongside the titular DI Cloth, played by John Hannah, The Doctor’s Wife star Suranne Jones as DI Anne Oldman (pronounced “Old Man”) and rumoured potential Twelfth Doctor, Julian Rhind-Tutt as ACC Tom Boss.

A Touch of Cloth series 3 will air in the New Year, and you can get a taste for the show (yes, with adult humour – so beware) over at Bleeding Cool.

About the Author


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
