What is the Plot of The Cleaner?
The protagonist Wicky is a state-certified cleaning technician who cleans the crime scenes. Wicky hails from Shropshire. He is asked to clean the crime scene after the police have finished their detective work. Faces with blood on daily basis, nevertheless, he always has time for gossips. He talks to a wide array of people he meets through his jobs. During his duty, he ends up talking to everyone from the victim’s relatives, neighbours, and sometimes the criminal themselves. Although his job is one that most people would envy, he enjoys doing it mainly because he loves talking to people. But sometimes, he gets into trouble.
Paul is in his late forties, resolutely single and unencumbered by ties. Wicky acts as a kind of ingenue and sounding board, mopping up gloopy pools of blood. He usually absorbs the neuroses of people who are whining in grief.
Each episode unfolds the essentials as a theatrical two-hander with impressive guest stars. It is indeed a refreshingly odd premise and a very interesting series with the most talented star cast.
