Aidey Pugh, founder and director of Murder One, will be taking a break from playing his usual menacing murderous machiavellian suspects in his murder mystery events and instead can be seen playing jobsworth Jonathan in a pilot for a new BBC sitcom, Hospital People, this Friday (Friday 26th Feb, 10.35pm, BBC1).

The sitcom, set in the failing Brimlington Hospital, stars Tom Binns – an award-winning and critical acclaimed character comedian – who’ll be playing five other characters in Hospital People. Aidey massively enjoyed the experience and met some fantastic cast and crew. It was a welcome chance to smile and laugh – something he’s not used to doing in the serious business of murder!

UPDATE : The episode starring Aidey Pugh can now be seen on BBC iplayer here

    Well done Aide! You ‘under played’ your character to a tee and therefore it was all the funnier! We both laughed out loud through it all. Fingers crossed for a series!
