Love it or Loath it!
14 May 1999 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

This will not be to everyone's taste - but Deacon Brodie is a masterpiece of British, nae - Scottish television. It has all the qualities of a movie, especially the period scenery (Lovingly supplied by modern Edinburgh).

Billy Connoly is a scream as the man of the title, a rogue of the highest order but with a heart of gold (Cliche alert!!) who wants nothing more than to have a couple of quid in his pocket to keep him comfy in his coming years. It also has Ewen Bremner (Spud of Trainspotting fame) in a cameo as the local idiot.

It may be a comedy but it has it's serious take, like when Brodie's lover (a prostitute) has a nervous breakdown and goes into a coma because of all his broken promises to her (a recurring theme in the program).

I would recommend this for anyone who likes a good laugh and a bit of drama, a lovingly produced masterpiece!
