Bell in The Ball

Danny was blinded in a fight on New Year's Eve 2008. He's angry about it - in fact he's angry about everything. So his long suffering girlfriend suggests he joins a blind cricket team. It's surprisingly competitive and skilful. There's only one problem - Danny hates cricket. Comedy drama by Lloyd Peters.

What actually happened? He was having some banter with a Millwall fan and the next minute he was blind. He tries to reconstruct events in his mind, but he quite recall what happened. Danny was a sports journo - and an active man. Now his biggest sporting achievement is getting off the sofa.

At first Danny resists - he hates cricket. But then he gets sucked into the camaraderie and the competitiveness. His team - the Scorpions - get to the knockout final. Danny is desperate to be there, but so is his new blind friend Floyd. So what does he do? Stab his friend in the back?

Written by 'Doctors' writer Lloyd Peters and starring Jason Done from 'Waterloo Road'. Some exterior locations were recorded at Old Sharlston Cricket Club in West Yorkshire and with the enthusiastic participation of their visually impaired cricket team.
