Jim is on the 15.05pm from Glasgow to London, and everything that can go wrong with a train journey does - from signal failure to a herd of wild impala on the track.

This is a quirky, comic and touching tale of a man coming to terms with his past misdemeanours.

The many-voiced Niall Ashdown plays a whole host of characters from our hapless hero, Jim, to Mrs Precious, the monstrous piano teacher.

Jenny....Stella Duffy Jim and all other characters....Niall Ashdown.
