George Green
George who?

George Green first appeared as a supporting character in Unbelievers.  He's an amiable, seemingly bumbling figure, and - partly thanks to his somewhat unconventional way of looking at the world - he seems to attract more than his fair share of mishaps.

During some downtime in the middle of the shoot, after filming a scene with George actor James Bristol, co-creator Matthew Colclough and executive producer Robert Steven Hunt took the crew to a nearby field to shoot some short additional scenes exploring what the character might get up to when he wasn't busy being part of the main plot, and those scenes formed the basis for the initial episodes of George's own miniseries.

The spin-off was half-forgotten for a while as we concentrated on the main show, but further George episodes were shot in 2019 to bring the total to 7, with the series released on YouTube in early 2020.  He returned for a two-part Lockdown Special a few months later, and we haven't seen the last of George yet...
