Sports reporter (and widower/single-dad) Stuart Morrison's paper is in financial trouble, and hotshot businesswoman Cara Rossi's been assigned to make it profitable. Cara, eager to escape London after a disastrous affair with her boss, is still reluctant to take the assignment, as she left Glasgow for greener pastures and would once again be in the bosom of her overbearing Italian family. When she and Stuart meet, have a one-night stand, part, and then meet again in their business personas, will the relationship last and flower? Or will Cara's business plan and Stuart's memories of his wife, Siobhan, keep them apart? Written by
Glasgow Kiss is a wonderful story. The main characters, Cara and Stuart, are well cast, with chemistry that one can only hope to find in real life. Stuart's son, seven-year-old Denis, is an amazing young actor. Unfortunately, I could find no biographical information on him. I hope he continues to act! This six-part series, set in Glasgow, captures the mood of the city very well. The supporting cast are superb, especially the actors who play Cara's sisters. There is a lot of humour in this series, as well as some serious issues which are dealt with sensitively. Highly recommended. I would like to mention that Iain Glen (Stuart) is excellent in everything I has seen him in, especially "Wives and Daughters" and "The Diary of Anne Frank".
