His forthcoming films include Dead Head, a thriller that he will direct, inspired by a 1980s television series scripted by Howard Brenton. Howard has always been brilliant in his plays and with Spooks, the television series which he wrote for a long time. It was only shown once, but it was quite a cult series, said Dromgoole. The BBC was simultaneously very proud of it and very frightened by it. There was an enormous shock-horror press storm because of the amount of sex and because it was uncovering murky workings of the dark British state. He’s always been great at uncovering the slightly vicious underbelly of the state.
