They will join the core cast: Arabella Weir, Alex Norton, Doon Mackichan, Jonathan Watson and Sharon Rooney.

Steven Canny, Executive Producer, says: “We’re delighted Elaine, Jamie and Harki are joining us for this series. The ups and downs of the residents of Latimer Crescent will be brought brilliantly to life by this fantastic ensemble in these terrific scripts.”

Two Doors Down is a BBC Scotland comedy for BBC Two. Filming has begun this week in locations around Glasgow as well as in BBC Scotland’s Dumbarton studios. It is expected to air in early 2016.
