Loss adjusters are sexy and live in expensive, architect-designed flats. So says the BBC's new TV series, Armadillo.

Based on a William Boyd novel, the drama's central character, Lorimer Black, is a loss adjuster.

Lorimer's boss is a foul-mouthed nutter and has set him up to investigate a hotel fire. The subcontractor was running late with £10,000 of liquidated damages per week written into the contract. The hotel was over-insured, at £180m, by fictional insurer Fortress Shore.

Hmmm. Sound like anyone you know?
