NEW SIX FOUR DRAMA
STARRING KEVIN MCKIDD
Available for streaming on ITVX as of this Thursday, March 30th is new four part drama SIX FOUR with Kevin McKidd. Set primarily in Glasgow, it is a dark and compelling story of kidnap, corruption, betrayal and an uncompromising search for the truth, when Chris and Michelle O’Neill’s teenage daughter goes missing. Serving police detective Chris, played by McKidd, is provided with a startling revelation about an infamous, unsolved case that once divided the police when a local girl called Julie Mackie disappeared. Now, reeling from the news that his own daughter has gone missing, Chris is approached by a journalist who tells him that fatal mistakes were covered-up in Julie’s disappearance. Revisiting the case, Chris uncovers a series of undeniable errors, corruption and unbridled ambition.
I was just wondering why Kevin McKidd looks so familiar...then I googled it...and saw he played a doctor in Grey’s Anatomy..didn't know he is from Scotland.ReplyDelete
Oy, sister, he has been one of the leading British actors for two decades now, started with HBOs famous ROME series and then went to Anatomy. He is probably the most famous of the Scottish actors next to Ewan McGregor.Delete
You went down a dark road today. Kidnapping and murder. Oy. The world is a messed up place, indeed.ReplyDelete
I had nothing else to publish, I had to search real hard even for this meagre offer. There are days when I have to compromise and publish what I wouldn't usually.Delete
I used to hate those days when I was scraping the bottom of the barrel for something to share. Now I'm just like, eh, only doing the honey posts from here on out LOLDelete
Ah, the things we'd do for some honey!Delete
Family drama. Ugh. We recently got BritBox and have been discovering lots of murder mystery shows.ReplyDelete
Brits do love their murder mysteries.Delete
I remember K McK in Rome. That wasn't a bad series though they did play a bit fast and loose with the history (though that's not a rare thing these days). The lady who played Cleopatra made me think of Amanda Barrie in 'Carry On Cleo' from the 1960s (yes I have been on the planet that long). I have four books on library loan currently and I think they are all thrillers though not all written by British writers. Reading a murder mystery is kind of trying to solve a puzzle - trying to work out "who done it" though perhaps now and again I should try to read something that is a good story without having the dark subject matter of a murder as part of the plot.ReplyDelete
I prefer uplifting ones to the dark books myself.Delete
