19th May 2016

Jo Brand and Omid Djalili bring Croydon back to our small screens tonight in the wry BBC Four comedy series Going Forward.

Jo Brand’s character from the series Getting On, Kim Wilde, has quit nursing for the NHS and entered private health care. This comedy about broken Britain, focuses on the wider social implications of dysfunctional state services.

Here’s the trailer for the three-part series.

Viewers will recognise extensive filming in local streets and private homes across Croydon, including Edgecoombe in South Croydon, where Kim visits a patient.

Homes in Nightingale Road, Lapwing Close, Quail Gardens, Warren Avenue and Copes View were used, along with the council flats at Broadcoombe. And Regus Croydon played the office interiors.
