The Other One series 2 has started filming in Manchester
Created and directed by award-winning comedian Holly Walsh (creator of The Other One series one, Motherland), who co-writes and executive produces the series with Pippa Brown (The Other One series one, Psychobitches), xifollows a girl called Catherine Walcott and another girl called Catherine Walcott — sisters who had no idea the other existed until their father dropped dead. A comedy about what happens when you discover your dead dad has a secret family and you now have a brand new sister, The Other One is a love letter to siblings, mothers, and crap dads.
The Other One series 2 sees further Walcotts emerging from the woodwork, with Cathy Walcott (Ellie White) and sister Cat Walcott (Lauren Socha) reeling from the news they have a brother called Callum (Christopher Jeffries). And that Cathy got off with him. Horrific inter-familial misdemeanours aside, Cathy is determined to get her work and love life back on track, though the exciting opportunities coming her way might not be all they appear and her ex-fiance Marcus (Amit Shah) is continuing to loiter.
The one-year anniversary of Colin’s death is fast approaching, but his ability to surprise his growing family from beyond the grave continues unabated.
The Other One series 2 sees the return of cast members Ellie White (Cathy), Lauren Socha (Cat), Siobhan Finneran (Marilyn), Rebecca Front (Tess), Amit Shah (Marcus), Christopher Jeffries (Callum) and guest star Caroline Quentin (Auntie Dawn), with new addition Michelle Austin playing Angela.
