The penultimate episode of Hamish Macbeth begins (and centers on) the search for the Stone of Destiny. An odd Indiana Jones-ish start (even for this series) as there is FAR too much emphasis on backstory and the current tale of a full roster of new characters. Add to that an impossible-to-swallow hypnotist element and it takes buckets of patience to see this curious tale through to the villagers of Lochdubh and our intrepid Constable. Some lovely personal interactions amongst our better known characters save Destiny: Part 1 from complete dregs, but it's a rough ride to get there. This is a part-one-of-two episode, so perhaps Destiny: Part 2 will pick up with the best bits and see them through to satisfaction. time will tell.
