A Mo­ray pro­duc­tion com­pany has cre­ated a one-off episode of its com­edy se­ries as a spe­cial trib­ute to van driv­ers.

The orig­i­nal four-part Mor­ri­son’s Van se­ries fea­tured Dod Mor­ri­son, who serves his lo­cal com­mu­nity in his mo­bile shop.

Now writ­ers Euan Martin and Dave Smith, from Right Lines Pro­duc­tions, have re­turned with a spe­cial episode.

It is to salute van driv­ers for their “cru­cial” role dur­ing the pan­demic.

In the episode, it

seems as if lock­down will bring Dod’s re­tire­ment plans for­ward – un­til for­mer as­sis­tant Ka­t­rina high­lights just how im­por­tant de­liv­er­ies are.

Ron Emslie and He­len Mackay re­vis­ited their roles of Dod and Ka­t­rina.

The episode was recorded via Zoom and edited by James Bryce.

Mr Martin said it was “fun” to record the episode, adding: “Given the cru­cial role van driv­ers have played dur­ing lock­down, we thought it would be fun to write a new episode set in cur­rent times and in a way, cel­e­brate the work of th­ese de­liv­ery ser­vices.

“It was also our re­sponse to the need to keep Right Lines Pro­duc­tions go­ing in th­ese dif­fi­cult times.”
