Logline: 
Ruby is 60, a mother and a market trader; she is also a vigilante who has waited fifteen years for her revenge.
Synopsis/Details: 

Ruby Tuesday, a steely woman in her 60’s, helps weak women become strong. Using the cover of a market street trader she hides her true wealth and identity as a successful property developer in order to allow women in need to find her.
Ruby provides safe houses and creates work for the women she helps, but it is her exceptional ability at aikido, the most spiritual of martial arts, that truly helps the women to believe in themselves once again. From her dojo in a renovated chapel Ruby reveals the way for the women to release an inner strength and to fear no one.
Therein lies the conundrum of Ruby Tuesday, a woman at one with the universe yet who believes in an eye for an eye and seeks revenge on the five men who killed her husband fifteen years ago.
Through her good deeds she is drawn into a world of revenge and retribution, aided by her paramedic son, Jem, and pursued by a relentless female detective who knows a vigilante group is operating in Manchester. The problem for the detective is that crime rates have dropped and her instinct tells her not to capture Ruby.
The series sees Ruby deal with her husband’s murderers, the consequences of which only add to the number of people out to get her, until in the last episode the detective finally confronts Ruby and a new partnership is formed, leaving an opening for series two.

The Writer: Alan Fleet

I started out as a novelist and Woollyback was my first novel to be published in July 2000. Two years later this was selected by the UK Film Council for a tutored adaptation at Bournemouth Film School which in turn led to me completing a Masters in Screenwriting in 2006. To date I have made five short films, the first of which, Giri, won four festival awards, written five novels and one novella, completed a six-part TV drama and written seven feature screenplays, one of which, Summerisle, is a spec sequel to The Wicker Man that Robin Hardy had expressed interest in directing through personal contact before his untimely death.
