On top of that there's a "blobby gingernut" on the loose who escaped from a factory where his accomplice was left with a hammer in his head, more bodies to account for....and then there's a phone call. What Craven really doesn't need is this news from her mother. But when did her relationship with her mother ever feel convenient? And where is Craven's on-off relationship with Macca now?
