The Driver is a new crime drama series that is set in Manchester and stars David Morrissey. Rick plays Isaac in this evening’s episode. Written by Bafta-winning Danny Brocklehurst, The Driver follows the story of cab driver Vince McKee, an ordinary man who makes a terrible decision in an attempt to turn his life around.
