Be interesting to see how they approach the writing of the screenplay .Sayers has spent his whole life accusing the police of a conspiracy to fit him up so is he going be portrayed as a straight up businessman constantly trying to clear his name , or the ruthless Godfather of Newcastle.
It's based on Stephen Sayers book rather than John Henry. I haven't read it but isn't he a self confessed reformed gangster?
 
My first job was in an East End factory in Newcastle, and the older lads told me about a story about Viv apparently having his Cosworth stolen. So he put out a message out on a local radio station at the time and 3 stolen Cosworth’s were left outside his house overnight. Probably a load of exaggerated shite like, but he seemed well liked that end of Newcastle, even after his death.

Well liked, or maybe feared because he was a bully.

Well liked apparently, they said you could go for a pint in the East End as he ran the doors and you wouldn’t get any trouble. That changed after he died according to them. I personally think he was probably a bully, I don’t think you can get to his heights without intimidation etc, but I never knew him.
