Cat, how did you develop the concept behind five by five?

Cat Jones: Well it came from Idris actually, who really wanted to do a piece that explored identity, and we decided to develop on that.

“That really is the focus of the show, to explore as many types of female relationships as we can.

But clearly someone on the production team has a contacts book to die for because this unassuming but hugely enjoyable comedy returned tonight with none other than Twilight star Taylor Lautner filling the Big-American-Name gap. ” was the obvious question on everyone’s lips as series two got under way. Writers Robin French and Kieron Quirke responded to the cast change with terrific skill and inventiveness by creating a new character around Lautner: Dale Jr, the son of Samberg's Dale "Cuckoo" Ashbrick.

Two years on, he was encouraging his bereaved daughter Rachel (Esther Smith in another successful cast change) to move in with her latest boyfriend, Ben the most boring man in Britain.

Until that is, fate and a couple of traffic accidents drew Dale (Lautner) – another hippy slacker from an ashram in Uttar Pradesh – to her door, much to her vicariously romantic mother Lorna’s (Helen Baxendale) delight.

It’s quite a hard time to be a young woman.”On what drew her to the role, star Synnove Karlsen - for whom this is her TV debut - added: “I think it fundamentally comes down to the relationships between women and how they’re tried and tested in really high pressure environments - how you support those women or go up against them.

I think that’s what’s interesting, especially when it became about two best friends in that scenario.” is in the interesting position of having been put in development before BBC Three’s move online, and Brittain calls the shift a “blessing in disguise” in terms of the channel’s commitment to having the show push boundaries and depict some the darker elements of women’s experiences at university.“Ambition’s sometimes this weird thing for young women,” she continued.
