Tonight sees the much anticipated return of ‘The Killing’ as we delve into a double-bill series three opener on BBC4 at 9pm. Along with all the excepted suspense and spooky piano background music, solitary detective Sarah Lund will be sporting some spiffing new knitwear. To celebrate the Scandi thriller’s return, we’ve put together some of the best knitwear to grace our screens over the years. Carly-Ann Clements
10. John Craven
Bringing a little bit of brightness to the news, John Craven used to sport some rather striking jumpers, weaving him into our hearts and memories.
And even now, he can be found wearing a nice piece of knitwear, although Richard Bacon has started to steal the lime light…
9. Jon Richardson
Comedian Jon Richardson has become known for his cardigans on the show ‘8 Out of 10 Cats’, though they’re not the riskiest knitwear we’ve seen.
8. Val Doonican
Val’s famous for his jumper collection and would proudly proclaim that he’d never ‘worn the same sweater twice’.
7. Zack Morris
The 1980s stud was quite partial to some vivid knitwear… anything to catch the lady’s eye eh, Zack?
6. Abed Nadir
Like Jon Richardson, Abed from the US sitcom ‘Community’ has built up a reputation as a cardigan wearer. But his seem to have a bit more pizazz.
5. Noel Fielding
London scamp and all-round funny man Noel Fielding is known for his whacky threads, and jumpers seem to be high on his list of must-haves.
4. Father Dougal McGuire
Our favourite dim-witted TV priest brightened up his monochrome garb with some rather fetching tank tops.
3. Phoebe Buffay
The quirkiest of the ‘Friends’, Phoebe’s fashion swung in and out of conformity, but every direction featured a piece of delightful knitwear.
2. Gyles Brandeth
Yes, our favourite British jumper wearer Gyles Brandeth brought colours and fun to Countdown for many years just with his playful jumpers.
1. Bill Cosby
Without a doubt, Bill Cosby is the most renowned jumper wearer that ever was… probably. With his fun, lighthearted knitwear, this TV doctor is the High Priest of Pullovers.
