The cast has been announced for new BBC Three comedy series Dinosaur, which comes from Fleabag and The Tourist producers Two Brothers Pictures.


The series, which has been created by Matilda Curtis and Ashley Storrie, will star Storrie as Nina, an autistic woman in her 30s whose life is upended when her sister and best friend Evie rushes into an engagement after only six weeks and makes Nina her maid of honour.

Evie will be played by Kat Ronney, while the rest of the cast will be filled out by the likes of It's A Sin's David Carlyle, Bridgerton's Lorn Macdonald and Roadkill's Danny Ashok.

They will be joined by Greg Hemphill (Still Game), Sabrina Sandhu (Maternal), Ben Rufus Green (The Cockfields), Jim Kitson (King Gary), Sally Howitt (River City), Kate Dickie (Annika) and Sanjeev Kohli (Stonehouse).
