Danny and the Hu­man Zoo BBC1, 9pm

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR TV WEEK -

Lenny Henry has been on our screens for so long, it’s easy to for­get just how re­mark­able his ca­reer has been. So, this fic­tion­alised ac­count of his early life, which he wrote and co-stars in, should be a real eye­opener. Kas­cion Franklin plays Danny, a tal­ented teenager grow­ing up in 1970s Dud­ley. His daily chal­lenges in­clude deal­ing with his ebul­lient but strict mother, and try­ing to get the at­ten­tion of the Ir­ish girl he’s fallen deeply in lust with, but un­like most other teens, he’s also got an emerg­ing com­edy ca­reer to worry about.
