BBC Scotland find laughs with ‘Dinosaur’


BBC Scotland find laughs with ‘Dinosaur’

From the team behind Fleabag and The Tourist comes the new brand new six part comedy series Dinosaur…

The comedy stars Ashley Storrie.

Nina’s happily getting through her usual Monday routine working at the Natural History Museum when her sister Evie drops by for a ‘surprise visit’ after her long weekend away. Stalling at first, Evie finally reveals she’s here to share some news, she’s engaged – to her boyfriend of only six weeks, Ranesh While Nina is concerned – she hasn’t even met him yet – her parents are thrilled, which baffles her. Her brother Bo just thinks it’s par for the course with Evie.

After venting to Lee, the new and charming coffee van man at work, Nina decides to give Ranesh a chance and let Evie invite him to their weekly takeaway night. However, when she is forced to make small talk with the irritatingly chipper Ranesh and Evie pretends to be a pretentious version of herself, it all becomes too much. Nina escapes to the solace of some organized fun with her colleagues from work.

Nina’s encouraged to get involved with the group, and Evie’s wedding, after a pep talk from her supervisor, Declan, who, like Nina is autistic. He understands the particular challenges of doing what the neurotypical people in their lives ask of them. She returns home on a high, and the sisters make up. Just in time for Evie to excitedly ask for Nina to be her maid of honour. Nina is cornered… she’s in the deep end now.

Nina is played by Ashley Storrie, Evie by Kat Ronney, Ranesh by Danny Ashok, Bo by David Carlyle, Diane by Sally Howitt, Ade by Greg Hemphill, Lee by Lorn Macdonald and Declan by Jim Kitson.
