Vicious, a brand new studio sitcom that stars respected luminaries of British stage and screen, Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi who will be joined by Frances de la Tour in this unashamedly wicked new comedy.
Episode one:
Freddie and Stuart host a wake to mark the passing of a dear friend.  Joined by their small circle of elderly friends, the couple manage to create a splendidly awkward evening of very little food and biting insults. They are also joined by Ash who is Freddie and Stuart’s new neighbour.  Ash spends the evening attempting to be a good guest whilst fending off the advances of Freddie and Stuart’s best friend Violet.
