BBC One’s latest David Walliams adaptation The Midnight Gang will premiere on Boxing Day (Wednesday December 26th) at 7:30pm, it has been announced.
The Midnight Gang tells the tale of a young boy named Tom who finds himself in the Children’s Ward at Lord Funt Hospital after being hit on the head by a cricket ball. At the hospital he meets a scary porter, the kid-hating matron and newly qualified, and slightly nervous Dr Luppers. Once Tom is moved to the children’s ward, he discovers The Midnight Gang, a secret gang of children who go on midnight adventures in the hospital making dreams come true.
When Tom’s wicked headmaster turns up at the hospital to take him back to his boarding school, Tom must find a way to stay in the hospital to fulfil one final adventure for The Midnight Gang. The one-off, which is based on the book of the same name by David Walliams, is produced by King Bert Productions and stars Alan Davies, Haydn Gwynne, Amit Shah, David Walliams, Oliver Zetterstrom, Mark Heap and Jocelyn Jee Esien.
