Background info on "Burn Your Phone"
13 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The TV drama "Burn Your Phone" was based on Andrew Wallace's original Radio 4 play, in which Alan Cumming originally played the role of Andy. Cumming was so impressed by Wallace's script that he pushed hard for it to be produced as a TV drama.

The screenplay shows its radio basis in focusing heavily on the main character and his reactions to the calls he receives. It's unusual for a TV audience to be asked to imagine off-screen scenarios, but Wallace's script and Cumming's well-judged performance make "Burn Your Phone" a half-hour of very watchable TV drama.

Andrew Wallace appears as an extra in the opening tracking shot, showing rows of telephone operators at work. He is now a successful stand-up comedian on the London comedy club circuit.
