Series Two of 'Vicious' continues to follow the loving yet brutally barbed relationship between Freddie Thornhill (Ian McKellen) and Stuart Bixby (Derek Jacobi). Together for fifty years, Freddie and Stuart still live in the same flat and are surrounded by their long-term friends: Violet (Frances de la Tour) is recently married and still as feisty as ever; Ash (Iwan Rheon), their attractive, young neighbor, now has a new girlfriend although that doesn't deter Violet from showering him with inappropriate affection; Penelope (Marcia Warren) is as dotty as ever and Mason (Philip Voss) has somehow become even more acerbic. In the second series, look forward to some surprising guests stars; an unexpected relative dropping in; a trip to the local gym and ballroom dance classes. As our characters return, so does their deadly, cutting humour. Vicious is back, and it's as raucous and hilarious as ever.
