4. Douglas Is Cancelled

Thursday 27th June at 9pm on ITV1


Written by Steven Moffat, ITV1's new four-part series about cancel culture, Douglas Is Cancelled is set in the world of television news and stars Hugh Bonneville, as the respected news presenter, Douglas, and Karen Gillan as his sharper, savvier co-anchor, Madeline. Ben Miles also stars alongside Alex Kingston, Nick Mohammed and Simon Russell Beale.

Douglas Is Cancelled introduces us to middle-aged, and greying, current affairs news anchor, Douglas Bellowes, a respected broadcaster and raconteur who loves the life he’s created with his newspaper editor wife, Sheila.

Whilst an experienced broadcaster for Live At Six, behind the scenes Douglas surprisingly needs constant reassurance from his sharper, younger, tech-savvy, social media-aware co-anchor, Madeline, who appears to be able to wrap him around her little finger.

His life is privileged as he’s regarded as a national treasure and apparently, can do no wrong, until he makes an ill-advised joke at his cousin’s wedding, which is overheard by a fellow guest, who threatens to expose his comments on social media.

Speculation is rife and during the ongoing hysteria and digital storm, Douglas’s alleged indiscretion is dissected, analysed and blown out of all proportion. Everyone appears to have an opinion and Douglas is struggling to escape the controversy. It’s a chaotic and unmanageable situation, but can Douglas count on the support of his agent and colleagues? What will Douglas do next?

Is he a casualty of ‘cancel culture’? With 2 million followers, what is Madeline’s motivation to social post on Douglas’s behalf? Friend or foe? That is the question.
