Scottish crime on TV Iain banks stonemouth

Base on the Iain Banks best selling novel

Set in the fictional Scottish coastal town of Stonemouth, it’s a dark but witty tale of love, loyalty and vengeance.

We meet Stewart Gilmour (Christian Cooke), who two years previously had been due to marry Ellie Murston (Charlotte Spencer, Line Of Duty), but was run out of town by her gangster father Don (Peter Mullan, Top Of The Lake).However, when Stewart’s best friend Callum dies in suspicious circumstances, he returns for the funeral. Back in his hometown, Stewart realises that he still loves Ellie – but her family may be involved in covering up Callum’s death.Stewart doesn’t fit in back in Stonemouth,” says Christian, best known for Where The Heart Is. “But I don’t think he comes back with the intention to investigate his friend’s death and get into trouble.”Ellie is Stewart’s soulmate, but if there’s a chance of them reconciling he knows it’s not going to be at the funeral. His return to Stonemouth is precarious enough.
