Helena Bonham Carter and David Mitchell have joined the cast of Greg Davies' new comedy about a crime scene cleaner.

The Inbetweeners and Taskmaster star has written and will star in The Cleaner, which follows Paul "Wicky" Wickstead, a state-certified cleaning technician who is responsible for the removal of any signs of death.

While cleaning up the scene of a crime, he stumbles across an array of strange characters, from the victims’ relatives, employers, neighbours and acquaintances, to occasionally even the murderers themselves.

The show is based on the long-running German comedy series Der Tatortreiniger, created by Ingrid Lausund.

A great line-up for Greg Davies new show

The Crown actress Bonham Carter and Peep Show star Mitchell join Davies in the cast, along with Stephanie Cole, Donald Sumpter, Shobu Kapoor, Ruth Madeley and Layton Williams.

Zita Sattar, Georgie Glen, Bill Skinner and Esmonde Cole will also feature.
