‘Bluestone 42’ Series 2 start date announced

Bluestone 42 will return to BBC Three later this month for its second series.

The new six-part series begins at 10pm on Thursday 27 February on BBC Three.

Written by Richard Hurst (Secret Diary Of A Call Girl) and James Cary (Miranda), the comedy-drama about a bomb disposal unit in Afghanistan launched last spring.

In the first episode of the new series, Nick’s new number two, Corporal Gordon House (aka Towerblock), has deployed to Afghanistan with a smart new pistol: the Glock 17. Nick then feels he must prove to Towerblock he can pass a weapons-handling test and get himself one. Unfortunately, he’s too proud to do the training, and the test does not go as planned.

Simon tries to gain the respect of others by studying Sun Tzu’s Art Of War, landing Bird in trouble when she is drawn into his obsession. Meanwhile, Mac comes up with a novel way to prove he is the filthiest inhabitant of Patrol Base Frost.
