Acclaimed actor Robert Carlyle (TRAINSPOTTING) stars as police constable Hamish Macbeth in this TV crime drama series, which is set in a small Scottish town. Macbeth's relationship with the town forms the backbone of the plot; constantly bringing the various miscreants who dwell there to justice, he often deploys unorthodox methods to get the job done. However, the constant threat of promotion, and subsequent relocation that would bring, hangs over Macbeth's head like a bad smell--he's so in love with the little town that he would rather avoid climbing the police career ladder and stay situated where he is. As the town is populated with eccentric characters who always raise a wry smile, it's not hard to see why, and Macbeth also has his eye on a couple of women who have caught his fancy, leading to a long-running subplot to the show. The complete first season of HAMISH MACBETH is contained here.
