I'LL BE WATCHING YOU

Written by Stephen Volk

Jack Rudkin, a violent criminal psychopath who reigned London by intimidation and terror in the 1960s, has been locked away in prison with a life sentence. But when a fellow convict stabs him, the chance brush with death gives Rudkin an “out-of-body experience”. Subsequently he finds that the prison walls are not the impediment they ought to be. And with this (highly uncharacteristic) new-found psychic awareness, he slowly plans his revenge against those who have wronged him in the past... and in the present.
