Storyline

Wry and obsessive DI Buchan is a cop on the edge; suave and self-assured Jack Harvey is a best-selling crime novelist with the world at his feet. As Buchan probes a 100-year-old cold case, his investigation takes him on a journey into the Scottish capital's literary past that will cause him to question his very existence and set him on a collision course with his onetime friend. Written by James Mavor and based on an original idea by Ian Rankin, Reichenbach Falls (commissioned as part of BBC Four's fifth birthday celebrations) reflects Rankin's fascination with his home town of Edinburgh and the legacy of a city which has produced so many Scottish literary classics, from 'Kidnapped' to 'The 39 Steps', from 'Sherlock Holmes' to 'The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie'. Written by James Mavor

One character in flight from an author
3 March 2007 | by (Saffron Walden, UK) – See all my reviews

This is one of those dramas where simply to mention the sort of things that it brings to mind is to give away the plot.: the plays of Dario Fo and Tom Stoppard, or, on television, 'The Singing Detective'. One one hand, it's nicely executed, even if there'a certain element of cliché in this Edinburgh-set detective story, the necessity of whose introduction only eventually becomes apparent. But ultimately, there's none of the deep psychological underpinnings that characterised 'The Singing Detective', and the result is a story that whose whole is a gimmick, essentially less than the sum of its parts. One compensation for those of us who love Edinburgh is the fine use made of the city throughout the film.
