I did have a copy on video - long lost after several house and country moves!
Based on the Bogie Man comic series, with Clunes (Coltrane) escaping from an asylum, while the medical staff celebrate new year. He's delusional and his reality is very fluid resulting in the different circumstances and people he encounters while on the streets are woven into his reality and into a crime that needs to be resolved. At first it's random but soon involves a real crime.
If I remember Fiona Fullerton's character was Dr Olive Branch and Midge Ure was a haulage owner with a less than legal side line.
Overall I thought it worked well enough and may be worth a budget DVD release - well they'd sell one copy at least.
