    I talk to Susan Wokoma and Ed Easton

    After an initial three-part pilot series in 2017, Dave's hit hospital comedy Porters is returning with six brand new episodes and I caught up with two of the show's leading stars to find out more.

    "The only time you get black women on screen at the same time is a slave story..."

    Alice Jones, i Newspaper, 13th March 2019

    The sweary and sometimes surreal sitcom about life among hustling hospital porters returns for a second series. Indecisive gofer Simon is still mooning after nurse Lucy while his streetwise mentor Frankie reignites a feud with an old nemesis (Daniel Mays). But where has golf-loving veteran Tillman (Rutger Hauer) gone?
