Created by Charlie Brooker, A Touch of Cloth has been described as an all-encompassing parody of every police procedural ever written and follows the exploits of DCI Jack Cloth and his partner DC Anne Oldman. Cloth is a maverick, boozeaddled, widowed loner, whose life is falling apart following the mysterious death of his wife. However the swordwielding/stroking/polishing maniacs who make up the local criminal element dont care about the grieving process and Cloth’s got to clean up his act to solve a string of grisly murders. The comedy series, which has already been renewed for a second season and a two hour TV movie, stars John Hannah, Suranne Jones, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Adrian Bower, Navin Chowdhry and Daisy Beaumont.
