BBC 1 at 9:00pm (Other show times...)

The Driver

Taxi driver Vince McKee finds his life taking an unexpected turn when he accepts an offer to drive for a criminal gang. It's been engineered by his old friend Colin, who has resurfaced after a six-year stretch in prison.

The Driver is the story of an ordinary man who - out of frustration with his job and his life - makes a terrible decision.

Ever since their son Tim cut ties with the family, Vince and his wife Ros have drifted apart. They blame themselves for his departure and have become accustomed to living separate lives.

The offer of becoming a driver for gang leader The Horse at first seems like an exciting proposition to Vince, but as the gang prepare for a major job he soon starts to wish he could have his old life back.
