Mark Steel’s in Town drops into Dumfries and Kirkwall
For Mark Steel’s in Town, the comic drops into six UK locations to discover what makes them and their inhabitants peculiarly unique. Not only does he go and find that kind of stuff out, he then goes and performs a live stand-up show in that town to tell them about their loveable quirks. In this episode he drops into Dumfries with its abiding fondness for Rabbie Burns and its local football team: the cock of the north and Queen of the South, if you like. Another Scottish twist is added when he lands in Kirkwall on 12 May for the series’ finale.
