Sky Atlantic HD on Monday February 18 - Rupert is written by and stars Johnny Vegas and Tony Pitts and is set entirely in a tattoo parlour just off the local high street.

Following the death of his father, Rupert (Vegas) reluctantly takes on the family business. As the story begins, his Australian girlfriend Jill (Celia Pacquola) delivers the news that her visa has just run out, putting pressure on him to move.

Meanwhile, he also receives an unexpected visit from the local gangster, Sunshine Simon and his sidekick, Spinks (Paul Kaye).
