Screwdriver - available online only - is a 15 minute spin-off from Cucumber and the real gem of the lot. Actress Julie Hesmondhalgh, known by many as 'Hayley from Corrie', engages the viewer on a profound level as she talks to her 15 year old son Adam about the horrors of the porn industry. "We're missing the fact that a tidal wave of porn is flooding into our children's lives", exclaims Hesmondhalgh's character Cleo. Screwdriver is deeply concerned with the brutality of the porn industry and the premature age that porn is first discovered at.
