Storyline

Set in Glasgow in 1982, Paddy Meehan is a young girl in a world of men; a feisty copy boy in the sexist, hard-boozing, cutthroat world of journalism. Paddy dreams of being an investigative reporter, and she grabs the opportunity when a young boy, Brian Wilcox, is kidnapped and found murdered. Paddy sees connections to a year-old crime that nobody else sees and she is determined to make it her story. But when Paddy crosses the line, she becomes outcast from her devoutly Catholic family and puts the lives of her colleagues, as well as her own, at risk. The closer she gets to the murderer, the closer she gets to murder; and the price of achieving her dream will prove greater than she can ever imagine. Written by Bye

Miners and newspapers
11 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The second series of, The Field of Blood returns to Glasgow and again blends politics, intrigue and the changing newspaper industry.

Once again we follow novice female reporter Paddy Meehan as she tries to make a career for herself. She is working the night shift on the call car with a tough reporter and she is soon following up a murder mystery.

The main backdrop is the Miners Strike and the dirty tricks campaign against it. However, we are also looking at new, tougher executives entering the newspaper industry, less principled and happy to do the dirty work for the government in a propaganda war.

There is no doubt the story takes place with the benefit of hindsight. With or without media help, the Miners strike was very unpopular in some quarters and most media outlets were very happy to be negative against the Miners Union with very little persuasion.

There is an element of looking back with rose tinted spectacles. It is a decent enough second series, we see Paddys ongoing, difficult relationship with her parent but nothing too special.
