Written by Sandi Toksvig, Bully Boy is a gripping tale examining the effect of modern warfare on the mental health of soldiers.
Major Oscar Hadley, played by Anthony Andrews, is investigating allegations of gross misconduct within a self-styled ‘Bully Boy’ unit of the British army. As he interviews Eddie Clark, a young squaddie from Burnley, it begins to become clear that ‘truth’ in modern insurgency can be a point of view rather than fact.
Actor Andrews is best known for his television performance playing Sebastian Flyte in Brideshead Revisited, a role for which he won a BAFTA and Golden Globe.
Writer Toksvig is a comedian, author and presenter who currently presents BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz.
