EastEnders resident Tamwar Masood is set to get his own spin-off mini-series.
Tamwar Tales – The Life Of An Assistant Market Inspector will follow the character, played by Himesh Patel, as he goes about his daily life.
In the four weekly short films, viewers will be able to hear for the first time what Tamwar is really thinking as he endures all that life throws at him, including the excuses, teasing and daily hassles from his regular stallholders.
He averts a security incident caused by Kim Fox (Tameka Empson), encounters his dad Masood Ahmed (Nitin Ganatra) fly-pitching, Harlem Shakes with Fatboy (Ricky Norwood) and then he meets Jean Slater (Gillian Wright), where things take an unexpected turn.
Himesh said: “It was really fun working on the four shorts. It was like taking a character that we know and putting him in a different genre. Viewers who are a fan of Tamwar will finally get a look inside his head.”
Tamwar Tales, written by Richard Lazarus, will screen from July 25 on the EastEnders website.
