Did You Know?


According to the English subtitles, Ian/Iain says: "he's sae fou as a piper, an' awfu aff the fang". Sae fou appears in a number of old Scottish poems and can mean drunk i.e. he's as drunk as a piper (piper=someone who plays the bagpipes). Awfu or awfully is commonly how Scottish people add emphasis for something being very much so e.g. "awfully wee" is "very small". "aff the fang" is an old Scottish term that can mean not in the mood/out of humour/without one's usual power. So, it means something like: he's as drunk as a piper and very much out of sorts.

User Reviews

The continued decline
14 March 2020 | by ed-greenbergSee all my reviews

Student level writing meets amateur direction in an episode that may as well have been on the radio. Such wonderful promise and an excellent premise established in the pilot has been steadily chipped away, culminating in the most exposition heavy episode to date. No imagination or creativity has been utilised here to help deliver the crucial plot revelations to the viewer. Scene after scene of static characters talking. The show and the cast deserve more.
