Joe Penhall on Moses Jones

In The Telegraph, Joe Penhall explains how he came to write Moses Jones, a new thriller starting on BBC Two tonight (and then on BBC iPlayer).
Moses Jones isn’t really about ritual killing or Uganda’s troubled history. It’s about London today. It’s about loyalty in a big bad world. It’s about faith and beliefs and identity – and the fear and confusion they engender. These days these are dramatic subjects. They define and exercise us in a way they haven’t done since the Seventies when Amin and Obote were in the news and Britain succumbed to the National Front. But ultimately Moses Jones is about belonging and the places we call ‘home’. Is there anything more important?
