Daisy May Cooper leads the cast of the new BBC drama Rain Dogs.

Rain Dogs is a story about a mother’s love for her daughter, and the BBC promises it’s a “wild and punky tale”.

Costello Jones, her daughter Iris, and friends Selby and Gloria make up the so-called ‘Rain Dogs’.

They are a makeshift family “fed on defiance and chaos”, who also hold a “deep but complicated love for each other”.

BBC said the show will have “a dark lick of humour and an anarchic attitude”.

The channel tells us: “Rain Dogs is a wild and punky tale of a mother’s love for her daughter, of deep-rooted and passionate friendships, and of brilliance thwarted by poverty and prejudice.

“Rain Dogs […] is told with a dark lick of humour and an anarchic attitude.

“It stars Daisy May Cooper as Costello Jones, Jack Farthing as Selby, Ronkẹ Adékoluẹjo as Gloria Duke, and Fleur Tashjian in her debut role as Iris Jones.

“They are our four glorious Rain Dogs; a makeshift swaggerous family fed on defiance and chaos, and a deep but complicated love.”

We can’t wait to see more!

What does Rain Dogs mean?

In the Urban Dictionary, rain dog is a term used for someone who is lost and cannot find their way.

A rain dog comes from the old saying it’s “raining cats and dogs”.

A “rain dog” is a dog caught in the rain, with its whole trail washed away by the water so he can’t get back home.

A stranded dog, who wants nothing better than to get home.

Singer Tom Waits coined the term on his album named Rain Dogs.

The lyrics read:

“Inside a broken clock

“Splashing the wine with all the rain dogs

“Taxi, we’d rather walk

“Huddle a doorway with the rain dogs

“For I am a rain dog too.”
