Tom Davis wants to bring Murder In Successville back ‘in the biggest way possible’

Tom Davis has spoken about the prospect of returning to hit comedy Murder in Successville, saying he’d like to bring it back ‘in the biggest way possible’.

The comedian, who created and starred in the cult show from 2014 to 2017, has said that could ‘never say never’ to returning as DI Desmond Sleet.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk about Murder in Successville and its impact, Tom said: ‘It was the most incredible show to make. I’m genuinely blessed.

‘I’m very thankful that I get up every morning and work in this industry. It’s a hell of a journey.’

Discussing the chances of the the show returning, he added: ‘It genuinely makes me sad to think I’d never put on a raincoat and grow up a handlebar moustache again.

‘It would be good one day to bring it back, and bring it back in the biggest way possible… Never say never.’

The partly-improvised Murder in Successville ran from 2014 to 2017 on BBC Three, with celebrities joining fictional detective Desmond Sleet to solve mysteries.

The likes of Jamie Laing, Richard Osman, Martin Kemp and Emma Bunton guest starred on the show.

Since the third series of Murder in Successville, Tom has written and starred in James Bond spoof Action Team and sitcom King Gary.

The latter focuses on a ‘geezer diva’ and his childhood sweetheart Terri, as they attempt to succeed in competitive suburbia.

Speaking about King Gary, Tom said the majority of the show’s material draws on personal experiences – including the upcoming Christmas special, which airs on BBC One on December 23.

The key storyline features Gary trying to put up Christmas lights for everyone in his street, which was inspired by Tom’s friend who attempted to put up the biggest lights in South London.

‘I guess it’s the only way that you can make the show as honest as it is. They’re real things that have happened to real people that I know,’ he said.

‘The starting place is usually a story that you’ve heard from someone down the pub, or it might have happened to me. Then we say, ‘How can we make this thing as big as it possibly can be?’

The King Gary Christmas Special airs at 10pm on December 23 on BBC One. Murder in Successville is available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
