Daisy May Cooper, the star of hit BBC comedy “This Country,” is to play a suspected witch being escorted to trial in seventeenth century England in new BBC Two comedy series “The Witchfinder.”

Cooper will star alongside actor and comedian Tim Key, who plays a failing witchfinder transporting her to a trial that could change his fortunes forever. But his captive is the worst possible travel companion: an inquisitive, uncouth woman whose ability to prick his pomposity and ask uncomfortable questions turns a straightforward journey into a life-changing ordeal.

Set - Middle - English - Civil - War

Set in 1647, in the middle of the English Civil War, “The Witchfinder” is created by Neil and Rob Gibbons, the writers and directors of Steve Coogan-starring “This Time With Alan Partridge.”

The six-part series is produced by Coogan’s production company Baby Cow, whose credits include “The Trip”, starring Coogan and Rob Brydon, as well as features “Alpha Papa” and “Philomena.”
