Quirky and very interesting show
27 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I came across this show by chance while recovering from a major back operation, and got engrossed in it very quickly. Whether it was like the books or not makes little difference to me, all that mattered to me was that Hamish Macbeth was a quirky and interesting show, and it was.

The story lines are simple but always paced very well and engaging, the characters are easy to relate to and the writing is consistently excellent being intelligent and quirky. The acting is also top-drawer, Robert Carlyle is perfect as Hamish having a perfect balance of being somewhat adorable and intense but always likable.

What made Hamish Macbeth so watchable though was the gorgeous scenery and how well the photography did to give this wonderful scenery justice, and also the atmospheric, beautiful and haunting background music.

Overall, a great show and very easy to get into if given a chance. 10/10 Bethany Cix
