The boys are back in town this summer as the third series of the critically-acclaimed, gutsy drama, Mad Dogs, comes to Sky 1 HD on 4 June at 9pm. Sky customers will be able to see the first episode even earlier as it will be made available via Sky On Demand from 29 May.
When we last saw Woody (Max Beesley), Quinn (Philip Glenister), Baxter (John Simm) and Rick (Marc Warren), en route to mainland Spain on the first stage of the journey they hoped would take them back home. When they docked in Morocco they realised their nightmare was far from over. Met by armed guards, a new chapter was set to unfold in this holiday from hell.
The story picks up with the four hapless friends in worse shape than ever before. Held captive in what appears to be a dilapidated prison in the desert, they are all enduring various forms torture and interrogation. They’re not the only inmates either as the feisty Mercedes (Jaime Winstone, Donkey Punch, Made in Dagenham) quickly makes their acquaintance but how well acquainted should they get? Can they trust her? Judgement has never been their strong suit and, behind the wire prison fence, home has never looked farther away.
Mad Dogs launched in 2011 and set the benchmark for Sky’s future slate of homegrown dramas, receiving a BAFTA® nomination along the way. The series continues as part of Sky’s commitment to increase its investment in original British content by 50% over the next three years.
Mad Dogs is confirmed for Tuesday 4th June at 9.00pm on Sky1
