Daisy May Cooper joked that she didn’t know what to say about gender politics since she was 17order century as she feared being canceled.
The This Country actress and creator plays a suspect in the upcoming BBC comedy The Witchfinder, which follows her character and the sorcerer (played by Tim Key) on an air trip through England, plagued by civil war, famine, and plague.
Set in 1647, Daisy plays a witch suspected of being a looter who is escorted across East Anglia to stand trial for witches.
Daisy said when asked if she was surprised by blatant sexism during this period.
‘Probably wrong. Men are b*stards, that’s it, that’s it for real. They have always been b*stars. There are some good ones. ‘
The Witchfinder is written and directed by Neil and Rob Gibbons, the masterminds behind Alan Partridge.
Daisy’s character has been described as ‘the worst possible companion’ due to her inquisitive and rude nature.
Her ability to ‘poke at the sorcerer’s softness and ask nasty questions turns a simple journey into a life-changing challenge.’
“You should check out The Witchfinder because not only is it a great cast, it’s also brilliantly written,” said Daisy excitedly.
‘I think it’s really different and it’s like the debut of the Gibbons brothers who’ve been working on, you know, a lot of Partridge stuff for a long time and now it’s their time to do their work. only me.’
She added: ‘I think this project has been going on for seven years but my God you can see all seven years of your work into this. It’s something really really different. So funny. ‘
The Witchfinder Boat has an all-star cast, with Jessica Hynes, Daniel Rigby, Tuwaine Barrett, Reece Shearsmith, Julian Barratt and Ricky Tomlinson joining Daisy and Tim.
The Witchfinder launches on 8 March at 10pm on BBC Two and will be available as a boxset on BBC iPlayer.
