The new Channel 4 comedy, Year of the Rabbit, follows Detective Inspector Rabbit (Matt Berry) as he solves crime in the seedy underworld of Victoria London. Listen to a Q&A with stars Matt Berry, Freddie Fox, Susan Wokoma, director Ben Taylor, writers Andy Riley and Kevin Cecil and producer Hannah Mackay.
The series follows Detective Inspector Rabbit (Matt Berry), a hardened booze-hound who’s seen it all, and his new, hapless, by-the-books partner (Freddie Fox). While they’re investigating a local murder, the lewd but insightful adoptive daughter (Susan Wokoma) of the chief of police joins them, becoming the country’s first female officer. Together, the trio must fight crime while rubbing shoulders with street gangs, crooked politicians, Bulgarian princes, spiritualists, music hall stars and the Elephant Man.
