From the vault: Simon Day's 'Grass'

In Grass, Billy Bleach, Day's character on The Fast Show, is a Londoner who is reasonably happy enough with his life of taking a Thai cooking class and being a pub know-it-all. Unfortunately, all that changes in an instant after witnessing a gangland killing and then finding himself relocated to Norfolk in rural England under a witness protection program (he was really counting on Florida).
