A bit of background for those of you who are not as nerdy as I am. The Witcher is a series of books by Poland’s answer to JRR Tolkien, Andrzej Sapkowski. They focus mostly on the adventures of a monster hunter called Geralt of Rivia in a dark fantasy world. It’s a bit like Game of Thrones but with the boring political bits cut out and the magic and monsters wacked up to eleven.
For anyone that doesn’t know this Saturday I was embedded with a group of hunt saboteurs (people who try and break up fox hunts) for a TV package. The sabs run a rather shadowy group, after an extensive background check they agreed to let me film with them but only if I hid their identities. So early Saturday morning I found myself shivering in the car park of Canterbury West station having no idea where I would be going or what I should be looking for. I was not left wondering long as a group of group of nine black eco warriors in an ancient Land Rover rolled into the car park.
