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

just plain bad i would have rated this a negative if we had the option
20 December 2017 | by olaflauck1See all my reviews

I don't know what BBC Scotland was thinking here. Great story which was ruined by the bad directing and era clichés. the heavy breathing victim , and the lead with the emotional dribble and of course we have to add the tough female editor, Damn! what did me in was the car not starting crap! after that I just wanted to shoot myself in the head! not even worthwhile renting from a library. for free!
