Road Rage

We leave the characters behind when we leave the set - drive home, have a drink, I do a bit of cooking, Louie does a bit of line learning, I hear her, watch the nine o’clock news, go to bed, get up at 5.30 and go to work.

George Baker, The Stage 1998.

Environmental activists and Kingsmarkham residents unite to fight the construction of a new bypass road through Framhurst Great Wood. Excavations for the bypass unearth the badly decomposed body of a German student. Then five people, including Dora Wexford, are kidnapped by Sacred Globe, a terrorist group committed to saving the world.
