“The Lazy Cow” is now on the air
She has had her own stage show, feature film, became a local panto star, and now Black Country comedy legend Doreen is ready to take to the airwaves in Radio Doreen – a brand new pop up digital station, dedicated to her.
The character Doreen Tipton is played by actress Gill Jordan and was brought to the forefront by Quarry Bank born writer and film-maker David Tristam.
‘Doreen’s Sunday morning lie-in’ will air for the first time on Sunday November 4 and will air every fortnight on the new digital station. It promises special guests, original music, competitions and special featured along with a lot of ‘loffs’.
‘The Tiptons’ will air every other Sunday and will follow the antics of Doreen in a comedy drama.
“It’s a bit like The Archers, only set in the Black Country, so nothing like The Archers. It follows the fortunes of Doreen and her daughter Trojan as they battle to try and repay nearly two million pounds, from a lottery ticket win that the judge says they weren’t legally entitled to. The story picks up from where the Doreen movie left off.”
“He hopes fans will tune in for “around half an hour of mirth, music and mayhem, Black Country style” and he added: “We want to try and engage with the local community. We hope everyone will join in and support us.”
Doreen is currently touring the region. She is due at Brierley Hill Civil Hall on Tuesday November 6 and at Wolverhampton’s Grand on Friday November 2.
