Having effectively cured all depression in last year's smash-hit hour, actress Anna Mann (Colin Hoult's "master class in character comedy" - Time Out) returns to take on the terrifying rise of fascism. Fear not, gentle liberals, Mother Mann is here.

Star of her very own Sky Arts Short, 'Anna Mann's Valentine'. As seen in Murder in Successville, Porridge, Derek, Nurse, Life's Too Short, and Being Human.

Directed by Phoebe Bourke for Berk's Nest.
