Duration: 1 hour, 45 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Two HDLatest broadcast: on BBC Two HD

Walter Mitty, an editor in a company publishing trashy novels, has an overprotective mother and an overbearing boss. He finds comfort in daydreams, from captaining a storm-tossed ship to masterminding surgical operations, but his life is suddenly turned upside down when a beautiful blonde seats herself next to him on his daily commute and tells him she is being followed. He is soon on the trail of a little black book. Show less
