The Collector is a tale of murder, evil and betrayal set in occupied Iraq in 2003. Mazrat Gaol was one of Saddam's most notorious torture houses. More than 10,000 people died here. Now under Allied command, Nassir works as a local translator for American interrogators. Nassir is pro-Western, determined to bring liberal values to his country, and he's about to get married to his sweetheart. But when he is recognised by a psychotic prisoner, his life becomes a living hell.
Henry Naylor has written for 'Spitting Image' as well as some of the most famous comedy names including Alistair MacGowan, Lenny Henry, Rory Bremner, Smith and Jones and 'Dead Ringers'.
