Update : 15 May 2013
Writer/director Julian Simpson has tweeted about a new radio play which he has written in which Nicola has been cast.
This dream cast is kind of like a Spooks reunion, since Robert Glenister. Tim McInnerny and Herminone Norris have all appeared in Spooks [TV] with Nicola.
From further Tweets, we know that the show will be recorded on Monday, 20 May 2013 and Tuesday, 21 May 2013, and it will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on 5 June 2013. If the show airs in the afternoon, its likely to be the Afternoon Drama slot at 14:15 which usually lasts for 45 minutes.
Update : 21 May 2013 – We now have a title and synopsis
