She’s Gone (ITV1 2004, Ray Winstone, Gary Lucy)



Minder (ITV 1979-1994, George Cole Dennis Waterman)

In one off drama She’s Gonebusinessman Harry Sands is a man who endures every parent’s worst nightmare when his daughter Olivia disappears during her gap year in Istanbul.

So begins a nightmarish journey through a foreign land, where Harry must learn that the real battle is not against the people amongst whom his daughter has been working, but against his own prejudices and his mounting paranoia.

As Harry spirals out of control, his wife Joanna, played by Lindsey Coulson, and his son Michael, played by Gary Lucy, step in to support him and to try to help him find Olivia. Emily Corrie also stars as Manda, Olivia’s best friend.

Set in Istanbul and London, She’s Gone is a tense psychological drama about love, loss and reconciliation written by Simon Tyrrell (The Vice), produced by Joshua St Johnson and directed by Adrian Shergold.

Originally scheduled to shoot in Istanbul, filming had to be transferred to Malta in the aftermath of the Al-Qaeda bomb blasts at the British Consulate and HSBC bank, which killed 26 people and injured more than 400. This atrocity is reflected within the drama.
