Bloods on Sky One: What’s it about?

Bloods is a brand new six-part comedy series following paramedic partners Wendy and Maleek in the South London ambulance service.

When tough-acting loner Maleek is paired with over-friendly divorcee Wendy, their odd partnership looks dead on arrival.

But, of course, the unlikely pair soon find they have more in common than they thought.

Who’s in the cast of Bloods on Sky One?

Golden Globe-nominated Jane Horrocks stars as Wendy, who is newly separated from her husband and has moved from Nottingham to London to make a fresh start.

Jane is loved for her roles in Absolutely Fabulous and Little Voice.

BAFTA-nominated Samson Kayo stars as Maleek, the paramedic with loads of swagger, but not much to back it up.

Samson is best known for his roles in Famalam and Timewasters, and is the creator of Bloods.

Motherland star Lucy Punch portrays boisterous ex-army member Jo, who oversees the paramedic team and acts as Incident Commander at complex scenes.

Meanwhile, The Mighty Boosh star Julian Barratt portrays motorbike paramedic Lawrence, who lost his wife 10 years ago.

Gosford Park’s Adrian Scarborough portrays mild-mannered Gary, the station’s longest serving paramedic.

Dustin Demri-Burns, Aasiya Shah, Sam Campbell and Kevin ‘KG’ Garry also star.
