Alan Davies stars as 'executive chef' Roland White in BBC comedy drama WHITES. Set in the fast-moving kitchen of a country house hotel, the series follows Roland's many ups and downs, as he deals with the fact that he's well past his prime. 15 years ago he could have joined the heady ranks of celebrity chefdom, but laziness got the better of him and bitterness continues to nibble away. Roland's long suffering sous chef Bib (Darren Boyd) is left to pick up the slack, but he's got competition in the form of cocky apprentice Skoose (Stephen Wight). The hilarious and cringingly-relatable comedy also stars THE IT CROWD's Katherine Parkinson as restaurant manager Caroline, with Maggie Steed as batty hotel owner Celia.
