Having spent the day answering the phone and praying for some action, Will Hoffman is enjoying a night out... Having signed a controversial new European treaty, the Prime Minister is on his way back to Downing Street... Having survived yet another day, the people of Britain are settling down to eat dinner, stay in, go out, spend time with their friends...

"...we’re receiving reports that..."

It's just another ordinary evening in the United Kingdom...

Notes Edit

  • This audio drama was recorded on 5 December 2004 and 30 January 2005.
  • Chaudhry remarks that Dalton would have liked Brimmicombe-Wood. PROSE: Project: Valhalla, released later in the year, would reveal that the two men's fathers had been friends.
  • Part of the plot involves the bombing of the London Underground to terrorise people. On 7th July 2005, a few months after the story was released, the Underground was bombed in real life.
  • The audio drama begins to start the end credits theme when Kirby is arrested, only for it to abruptly stop when he reveals he's carrying a bomb.
