Mad Dogs Series 2 Premiere – Sky1 & SkyHD 9pm, Thursday 19th January

By January 18, 2012

Max Beesley, Philip Glenister, John Simm and Marc Warren are reunited for the return of Sky1's Bafta-nominated, critically-acclaimed Mad Dogs.

The new series will premiere on Sky1 & SkyHD at 9:00pm on Thursday 19th January 2012.

Filmed out in Majorca from May – August 2011, on location was:

  • Simon Clark, Sound Recordist,
  • Steve Peckover, Boom Operator
  • Mary Jane Reyner, Costume Designer

Created and written by Cris Cole, the bold, brilliant and occasionally bloody thriller – with moments of pitch-black comedy – sees the holiday from hell endured by Woody (Beesley), Quinn (Glenister), Baxter (Simm) and Rick (Warren) go from bad to worse. Much, much worse.

Beginning minutes after the dramatic climax of the last series, which saw Quinn alone and facing what seemed like certain death, Mad Dogs' trademark audacity is apparent as the boys take to the roads (and hills, and indeed clubs) of picturesque Majorca and beyond in a bid to outwit a sinister enemy, keep their ill-gotten gains, and – for one of the quartet at least – get the jaw-droppingly gorgeous girl.

Under a blazing Balearic sun, there are blazing rows, explosive spectacular stunts and, as befits a drama that's as much about male friendship and getting older as it is a darkly comic caper, moments of surprising tenderness. Oh, and did we mention the dead goats?
