obscure Scottish legal drama,shirley Henderson's big break
12 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I do not think that this was shown outside Scotland,but it was not a bad attempt to combine a legal drama with social comment. It involves aids and prostitutes and corruption in Ediburgh. If you know Edinburgh you might feel that the story is not very far fetched. The whole tone in like a Ian Rankin novel,upper classes and low lives mixing after dark. Shirley Henderson is amazing as a young street prostitute caught up in tangled plot. Ewan Stewart is good as a investigative reporter. Ewan Stuart has for some reason never become a star,despite being a good actor and fairly handsome. This was available on video a long time ago but has yet to come out on DVD.
