Mountain Goats is a brand new six-part BBC comedy series set around the antics of a ragtag group of Mountain Rescue volunteers. The first episode airs tomorrow night, Friday 14th August at 10:35pm on BBC One, starring HH client KEVIN MAINS as one of the series leads.
The show celebrates the Highlands of Scotland, with proper kilt wearing maniacs fighting disaster on a weekly basis against the stunning backdrop of the Glencoe hills. When the unlikely heroes aren’t out rescuing people, or being rescued themselves, they spend their time in The Old Goat pub – a place of great warmth and camaraderie, where people come in for a quick pint and never want to leave.
KEVIN plays Conor, one of the rescuers and a pub regular. He’s a handsome, easy-going young man who is more than a little bit naive. Other regulars include: Jimmy (played by Jimmy Chisholm), the wild and mysterious Bill (David Ireland), the cheery Bernie (Kathryn Howden) and no-nonsense Jules (Sharon Rooney). And our very own DOON MACKICHAN guest stars in tomorrow night’s opening episode as KEVIN‘s character’s mum, Norma!
