Hamish MacBeth

Hamish MacBeth is an offbeat "whodunnit" series, spiced with laconic wit and outrageous black comedy. Hamish is a young policeman, who has a shrewd knack of solving the bizarre cases that come his way. His beat is the apparently sleepy village of Lochdubh in the breathtaking scenery of the Scottish Highlands. Starring Robert Carlyle (The Full Monty, Once Upon a Time, Trainspotting).
