Behind every tough, rundown, drug and crime-ridden estate there's always an untouchable hardcase controlling it. In Byker that person is Falcus...or so he thinks. His crown is slipping, the challenges are constant and, what he and the rest of the little scrotes that infest this hole are about to realise, is there is a power struggle going on; a real threat to how things are run round here. A vigilante soon makes himself kwn. He's the new face, taking on any scumbag who gets in his way, picking them off one by one until only the kingpin is left... 'Special' is a gritty crime drama set in a world where unemployment is rife, petty thievery is the rm and the iron fist rules. This is where your face gets punched if it doesn't fit, where your wallet gets taxed if you walk down the wrong street and your car gets TWOCed if you leave it there long eugh. This is Byker; a story of real life.
