Thorne: Sleepyhead + Q&A

Actors Eddie Marsan and David Morrissey take part in an on stage conversation hosted by Mark Lawson after the preview of Thorne's first adaptation, Thorne: Sleepyhead. In this clip David Morrissey discusses his role as Tom Thorne, a DI investigating a serial killer whose latest victim has been deliberately left with locked in syndrome. Eddie Marsan, who also plays a DI, describes his approach to his own role and how important it was for them both to better understand their characters by seeking advice from a professional detective. Writer Mark Billingham also talks about his decision to place the victim's character and her relationship with Tom Thorne in the centre of his crime books.
