Speaking ahead of the series going live, actor Ben Miller, 53, how his character as boss Carter tries to dismiss the toxic environment.
“He doesn’t understand bullying,” the former Death in Paradise actor told Digital Spy.
“As far as he’s concerned, the way to deal with it is to stand up to the bully and to give as good as you get. And he doesn’t really want to know anything about it.
“He doesn’t really understand the situation. I don’t think he’s dismissing it. I just think he thinks the way to deal with it is to ignore them.”
Sticks and Stones concludes tomorrow night at 9pm on ITV.
