    Finally! It feels like I’ve been waiting for forever! Hahaha… So excited about this!

    The storyline of ‘The Night Watch’ was resonating so vividly in my mind after I read the book, that on my morning rush-hour walk to my City of London office the next day, I took a quick detour off Great Tower Street so that I could walk the short length of Idol Lane to find St Dunstan church for myself.

    St Dunstan was bombed out in wartime and was never rebuilt. Only its Wren tower remains intact. Its hollowed-out former interior has been neatly landscaped into a garden.

    As I walked round St Dunstan that morning, I toyed with the idea of commissioning a plaque to be nailed to the door of the church tower: “This is where Helen and Julia walked hand-in-hand and had a snog in 1944.”

    But don’t be silly, Jerry! It was only a story …
