Peter Lloyd: It’s Episode 1 of Street Law, a TV series set in a multi-ethnic law
practice in Singapore.

Gritty, realistic.

most times in your life?)

‘Broke My Neck’ by Echo and the Bunnymen.

Time – and ensuring many of the series-long plot issues raised in
Episode 1 continue throughout the series to the finale.

10. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Music. Travel.
