The Witchfinder on BBC2 will take us on a road trip through plague-ridden England in 1647 which is gripped by the Civil War and famine. But as the travelling companions are played by Tim Key as a pompous witchfinder and This Country star Daisy May Cooper as an incredibly opinionated suspected witch, their amazing journey promises to be full of laughs.

The Witchfinder is created by Neil and Rob Gibbons, the writers and directors of This Time With Alan Partridge. Kate Daughton, Head of Comedy Commissioning says: “In The Witchfinder, the Gibbons brothers have managed to create a timelessly compelling odd couple, forced together on a journey through one of the most baffling moments of English history. Tim Key and Daisy May Cooper are two of the UK’s funniest people and I can’t wait to see them tackle gender politics, male privilege and bees… on horseback.”
