Here's What Louis Theroux's Newest Documentaries Are Going To Be About

The Debrief: Our future husband is returning to TV later this year.

Apple of our eye and keeper of our hearts Louis Theroux is set to return to BBC Two later this year with two new documentaries which, as I'm sure you'll agree, is truly excellent news.

The documentary maker and dreamboat tall man who has previously covered everything from white supremacists to Thai brides is set to tackle both alcoholism and brain injuries in his two new films.

The first, called Drinking To Oblivion has been filmed at King's College Hospital where Louis has spent time with people in 'the grips of alcohol addiction' as their families and medical staff try to come to terms with their illness and figure out a way to help them out of it. And sorry, that's about all the information there is on that one at the moment...

For Brain Injury, which may or may not be the title they use when the show goes out, Louis hung out at the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust - one of the UK’s largest providers of neuro-behavioural rehabilitation - meeting patients there. Apparently, one million people suffer from the effects of a brain injury in the UK and Louis is meeting people as they learn how to walk, talk and eat again while redeveloping their personalities.

Adam Barker, the head honcho at BBC Two, says 'BBC Two is delighted to welcome Louis Theroux back to the channel with a set of films covering British subjects with his usual penetrating documentary gaze and commitment to unpicking complex human dilemmas with highly sophisticated filmmaking.'

Which is exactly what we would have said, but with slightly less eloquence.

No word on exactly when the films will be out other than 'this year' - which is basically an instruction from the BBC to 'sit in front of your TV from now until December 31st and await Louis' new offerings with baited breath'.
