A fare to remember: David Morrissey and Claudie Blakley in 'The Driver'

The Driver, BBC1 - TV review: Another midlife crisis for the poor man's Travis Bickle

David Morrissey is on his second midlife crisis of the year and it's still only September. Earlier this year he played a middle-aged married man making some bad decisions in The 7.39 and now he's playing another, cab driver Vince McKee in BBC1's new three-part drama The Driver. "The thing I don't get," said one puzzled character to Vince, "You're Mr Ordinary one day and then the next, not. How does that work out?" It's a question that might equally apply to many of Morrissey's performances and it was answered here by a neatly circular narrative and some modestly impressive performances.
