Rain Dogs is executive produced by Cash Carraway, Lee Morris, Sally Woodward Gentle, and Jo McLellan for BBC One. The series is directed by Richard Laxton and Jennifer Perrott.[5]


Rain Dogs has a soundtrack of power pop and alternative rock classics chosen by the show’s creator Cash Carraway.[6]

Some of the songs featured on the show include Nick Lowe’s “Cruel to Be Kind”, The ReplacementsLittle Mascara”, Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves of London”, Caroline Rose’s “Soul No. 5”, and Justin Townes Earle’s “Baby’s Got A Bad Idea”[7]

Episode 1 takes its name from Bruce Springsteen’s “It’s Hard To Be A Saint in the City” and Episode 7 from The Smiths “You Just Haven’t Earned It Yet, Baby”.[8]

The lead character Costello Jones is named after Elvis Costello and all of the supporting male roles are named after members of the English rock band Suede.[9]

Showrunner Cash Carraway was originally going to call the series All Shook Down after an album by The Replacements but later changed it to Rain Dogs after Tom Waits’ booze-soaked record about “people who sleep in doorways”[10]

Critical reception

Dan Einav in The Financial Times said that it “plays as both a bruising tragedy…and as an obscene, gallows humour comedy.”[14] Alan Sepinwell in Rolling Stone described it as “fascinating, poignant, and at times darkly funny”.[15] Sean O'Grady gave it five stars in The Independent and hailed it as " a fine memento of our troubled times."[16] Craig Mathieson of the Sydney Morning Herald awarded it five stars, calling the show "staggering".[17]
