Sky1HD is making a feature-length detective spoof, A Touch of Cloth, starring Suranne Jones and John Hannah. Co-written by Screenwipe's Charlie Brooker and Daniel Maier, it will star John as DCI Jack Cloth - a maverick, heavy drinking loner who has thrown himself into his work following the mysterious death of his wife. Cloth is teamed with plucky no-nonsense sidekick DC Anne Oldman, played by Suranne. Together the pair investigate a series of increasingly grisly murders and find themselves on the trail of a devious killer. As you do if you’re a detective... Sky1HD says the film will be a spoof of every British crime drama made in the last decade. Co-writer Charlie Brooker said: “After you’ve seen A Touch of Cloth you’ll never be able to watch another detective show again. Not because it’s a devastating p***take, but because you’ll have smashed your TV to pieces in a disappointed fury." There's no word yet on a broadcast date for A Touch of Cloth.
