What is The Witchfinder all about?

The forthcoming BBC 2 sitcom is the creation of the Gibbons brothers, who are responsible for creating, writing, and directing.

The Witchfinder is based upon the story of a failing witchfinder who is tasked with transporting a suspected witch to a trial that could change his fortunes. He is forced to deal with the worst possible travel companion and road-free trip across the country gripped by civil war, famine and plague.

Tim Key plays the failing, chauvinistic, pompous witchfinder. He's best known for his roles on radio but looks destined to appear more on the small screen.

Daisy May Cooper, who plays a foulmouthed suspected witch being escorted by Key, has been seen regular on British TV and radio with appearances on Taskmaster and Never Mind the Buzzcocks.  

She was also a guest judge on a recent episode of RuPaul's Drag Race: UK Versus the World.
