It’s been a very long time since we’ve been excited by a homegrown British drama on Sky1. Featuring a great cast that sees the reunion of Life On Mars stars John Simm and Phillip Glenister, as well as Marc Warren and Ben Chaplin, the plot sees four old schoolfriends head to Majorca for a get-together, only for disaster to strike. As an effective Shallow Grave/Sexy Beast cross, it promises to be the first big TV event of next year – and should prove that Glenister is more than capable of stepping out of the sizeable shadow of Gene Hunt.
Mad Dogs is to be shown on Sky1 HD in January. sky.com
