Fresh Murder They Hope coming to Gold

Fresh Murder They Hope with another series coming to Gold

Gold has ordered a second series of Murder, They Hope, written by comic Jason Cook and starring Johnny Vegas and Sian Gibson.

The pair will reprise their characters, Terry and Gemma, for three more hour-long episodes later this year.

‘It’s such a joy to be able to take Terry and Gemma on another series of journeys into the word we have created for them. The reaction from the public has been incredibly heart-warming and I’m so happy that UKTV are allowing us to keep telling their stories.’

Gold’s channel controller Gerald Casey added: ‘Jason Cook’s brilliantly hilarious murder mysteries have become a true mainstay of the Gold channel. I can’t wait to see Sian and Johnny back together as TV’s funniest crime-solving duo.’

Terry was a coach driver and Gemma, a tour guide in the feature-length one-off  Murder on the Blackpool Express which attracted  a huge audience during its first week of airing in 2017.

It was followed by Death on the Tyne and Dial M for Middlesbrough, before being made into the series Murder, They Hope, with Terry and Gemma having set up a private detective agency.

Pete Thornton, head of scripted for Gold’s parent company UKTV, said: ‘It feels like a rare thing to have a comedy that lasts for more than a few years nowadays on British TV, so to be back in business with the brilliant team behind Murder, They Hope… Hats off to all involved – we can’t wait to see whodunit next.’
