The Brilliant World of Tom Gates returns for Series 3!
The hugely-popular, BAFTA Scotland award-winning kids show The Brilliant World of Tom Gates returns to Sky Kids and NOW with a third series of epic episodes in January. Tom, the eponymous hero, excellent doodler and enthusiastic avoider of homework, embarks on twenty more rib-tickling adventures at home and at school, with his friends and family.
Favourite characters return for some more hilarious comedy adventures including arch-nemesis Marcus, forbearing teacher Mr Fullerman and long-suffering sister Delia. This series sees a host of brand new characters join the gang including cheeky, football-loving Kit, Delia’s cool bestie Avril and one of Tom’s newest friends, bass-playing, soccer star Celeste, who has bags of energy and is willing to give anything a try. Celeste has a cochlear implant and likes to teach her friends sign language to pass on secret messages. The National Deaf Children Society advised the producers on the visual portrayal of Celeste in the series.
In these new episodes Tom tries to catch a fly, starts a secret club, meets a bug expert, annoys his grumpy sister Delia, makes friends with a pigeon, rocks out with his band Dog Zombies and much, much more.
Included in every episode are short creative ideas for more Tom Gates fun as Tom and his friends show viewers amazing things to make, like a paper plate guitar or a slinky guitar, cool things to doodle, including a brilliant band poster and a speedy snail slide, and great games to play, like Spot the Odd Socks and Count the Pesky Pigeons.
“I love playing Tom because he’s very similar to me in that he gets up to lots of pranks and is very cheeky,” says 13 year old Logan Matthews. “In this series Tom is up to his usual tricks – he lets a pigeon loose in the classroom, he gets bossed around by his sister Delia and, worst of all, he gets stuck in a life with Marcus Meldrew!”
