Compelling six-part drama THE RUNAWAY is based on the gritty crime novel by best-selling author Martina Cole. Set in both London's Soho and in New York City, the serial spans the 1960s and 1970s, following the interweaving stories of Cathy Connor (Joanna Vanderham) and Eamonn Docherty (Jack O'Connell); childhood sweethearts ripped apart by the twisting hands of fate. Forced to run away from her care home Cathy ends up on the seedy streets of Soho, where she is taken under the wing of flamboyant transvestite Desrae (Alan Cumming). Eamonn meanwhile, becomes entangled in a life of crime and is faced with no option but to flee to New York. Fate eventually brings the damaged pair back together, but running away from their past is never going to be easy.
