Misfits is a British science fiction dramedy show about a group of young offenders sentenced to work in a community service programme, where they obtain supernatural powers after a strange electrical storm. In season 4 the “Misfits” are Rudy (Joseph Gilgun), Finn (Nathan McMullen), Curtis (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett) and Jess (Karla Crome).
Finn and Rudy share a room at the community centre but Rudy’s amorous escapades cause growing tensions between them. The shy Finn is secretly in love with Jess but his clumsy attempts at flirting with her aren’t very effictive. Jess in turn is attracted to the handsome barkeeper Alex (Matt Stokoe) who Rudy believes to be gay because he turns down every girl.
Curtis watches an argument between his new girlfriend, the mysterious Lola (Lucy Gaskell), and a stranger. When he questions her about it afterwards, she confesses that the stranger was her violent ex-boyfriend Jake (Andrew Gower). She convinces Curtis to take a gun to threaten Jake so that he leaves her alone. When Curtis confronts Jake, a fight between them breaks out, and Jake is accidentally killed.
Curtis then learns that Lola is an imposter, whose freak power it is to manipulates men to turn against each other. However, the only other person, who knows Lola and who has any information about her, is Jake, the man Curtis has just killed. Curtis decides to resurrect Jake even though this will eventually turn Jake into a zombie.

The episode 1 overview is as follows:
Misfits is back for the fourth series and new gang members Finn and Jess are zipping up those iconic orange jumpsuits for their first day of community service and meeting their probation worker… or is it their new probation worker? Things become stranger still when a man stumbles into the community centre with a briefcase and a power that infects them all. The truth unravels in a series of tense flashbacks and it’s soon clear to Finn and Jess that there’s more to community service than scrubbing off graffiti and picking up litter…
We will add any images of Andrew in his role as soon as they become available.

There is a small quote from Andrew Gower, who plays Dr Mullery, which is reproduced below, and also an episode synopsis for each scene which is absolutely full of spoilers so read it at your peril!
Andrew Gower on playing Mullery
“Mullery on the surface does not strike you as your typical surgeon…far from! But this second series allows you to see how throughout the hospital he’s actually becoming that little bit more ‘sought after’… And has the respect of his peers!
“With his new mentor and new specialty he’s more likely to speak his mind! And with that I think we discover he’s a surgeon who wears his heart on his sleeve!
“Peter Bowker writes beautiful tragic male characters and Mullery definitely falls into that bracket. Which makes him a pleasure to play!”
Dr Mullery’s role at St Matthew’s has changed since we last saw him:
Once Bremner’s cardio trainee, Mullery is now Gillespie’s registrar, specialising in general and vascular surgery. He seems slightly lost in the competitive world of surgery, but his sudden flashes of brilliance suggest that he might one day be an incredible surgeon.
