Series overview


The second series of award-winning time-travelling comedy Timewasters returns to ITV2.


Our time travelling jazz band are back for another spin through time in series two: Daniel Lawrence Taylor (Cockroaches, Uncle) plays Nick, Kadiff Kirwan (Chewing Gum, Crims) plays Jason, Adelayo Adedayo (Skins, Some Girls) as Lauren and Samson Kayo (Famalam, The Javone Prince Show) as Horace. 


This time round they're transported to 1950’s London where the future has arrived: the birth of the teenager, slick-haired Teddy Boys, the vibrant Windrush crowd, box-fresh televisions and - crucially - the dawn of Rock n’ Roll. 


A host of new stellar talent joins the cast for the second series including BAFTA/Olivier award nominated actress Anna Chancellor (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Hour), Javone Prince (PhoneShop, The Javone Prince Show), Ellie White (The Windsors) and BAFTA award winning actor Daniel Rigby (Eric & Ernie).


Episode 5


Nick's musical idol General Hands comes to stay but is he as friendly as he makes out? General Hands convinces the gang to kick Horace out of the house just as Janice is desperate to save him from the KGB.
