Eight-episode black comedy “Rain Dogs” airs on BBC One this Wednesday.

April 4, 2023
Eight-episode black comedy “Rain Dogs” airs on BBC One this Wednesday.

Rain Dogs is a unique and thrilling new series that explores the grittier side of life with a dark sense of humor and punk rock attitude. This show promises to be an unforgettable experience for viewers looking for something edgy and thought-provoking.

Set in Bristol, the series follows the story of Costello Jones, a single mother who is trying to make ends meet while pursuing her dream of becoming a writer. Alongside her are Selby, her loyal soulmate and loving tormentor, Gloria, her chaotic and directionless godmother, and Iris, her young daughter who loves South Park and William Morris wallpaper.

Rain Dogs is an eight-episode black comedy that was written by Cash Carraway and stars Daisy May Cooper and Jack Farthing. Cooper, who rose to fame with her hit show This Country, delivers a phenomenal performance as Costello Jones. Her rock-and-roll swagger and glint in her eye make her character stand out, and her love for her daughter is palpable in every scene. Farthing is equally impressive as Selby, Costello’s confidante, and partner in crime. Ronkẹ Adékoluẹjo also delivers an outstanding performance as Gloria Duke, Iris’s godmother. Fleur Tashjian is a newcomer to the acting world, but she shines in her role as Iris Jones.

The characters of Costello and Selby are undoubtedly the most captivating ones we’ve come across this year. Their idiosyncratic personalities include their twisted sense of humor and desires. Despite their brokenness, their sensibilities complement each other so impeccably that it’s painful to separate them. Rain Dogs skillfully balances its ominous tone with unexpected touches of tenderness, while unapologetically embracing its crudeness. Its specificity is unforgettable.

Rain Dogs is more than just a show about a single mother trying to make ends meet. It’s a story about the bonds of friendship, the complexities of love, and the struggles of those living in poverty. It’s a show that isn’t afraid to tackle difficult topics like addiction, mental health, and prejudice, but does so with a sense of humor and an anarchic attitude.

Filmed in Bristol in 2022, Rain Dogs is a co-production between HBO and BBC. The show has already garnered critical acclaim, with many praising its boldness and authenticity. The series premiers on Wednesday 5th April on BBC One at 22:40 CET.

Rain Dogs is a show that everyone needs to watch. It’s a reminder that life is messy, but it’s also beautiful. It’s a celebration of the power of love and friendship, even in the darkest of times. So if you’re looking for a show that will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between, tune in to Rain Dogs on BBC One. You won’t be disappointed.

Tune in to to watch Rain Dogs as it premieres on Wednesday 5th April on BBC One at 00:40 CET.
