    The script for Garrow's Law, Series 2: Episode 1 can be found HERE.
    (http://www.bbc.co.uk/writersroom/insight/downloads/scripts/garrowslaw_s2_ep1.pdf)


    And there are a few scenes in the script that we do not see in the episode... Like the very first scene:


    EXT. COACH. DAY 1.
    A coach rattles through the English countryside. Alone.


    CUT TO:
    INT/EXT. COACH. DAY 1.
    FOUR COACH PASSENGERS, including GARROW, at the point of a pistol aimed at them as they warily, fearfully even, remove their valuables and hand them over. We open out to see the HIGHWAYMAN, impatiently gesturing with the pistol to hurry them along. As he takes their valuables, the HIGHWAYMAN stops, pulls down his mask and enquires:


    HIGHWAYMAN: Mr Garrow...?
    GARROW: You know me?
    The HIGHWAYMAN's tone suddenly friendly, convivial.
    HIGHWAYMAN: Know you? Why I'd know you even if you was boiled up in soup!
    GARROW smiles awkwardly at the scrutiny of the other PASSENGERS.
    HIGHWAYMAN: You was for me at the Bailey. Highway robbery and not guilty. You do not remember?
    GARROW: The memory is all too vivid now.
    The HIGHWAYMAN, delighted, hands him back his valuables.
    HIGHWAYMAN; I paid you out before and I am grateful once again. Lord bless you and save you!


    The HIGHWAYMAN withdraws. GARROW acutely aware of the other PASSENGERS looking at him. They are put out. They did not get their valuables back.
