BBC Scotland: The Field of Blood (from the novel by Denise Mina)

FOB For some reason, the two-part The Field of Blood only aired on BBC Scotland earlier this week.  Luckily it is available on iplayer here because, as crime dramas go, this one hits the 'not to be missed' slot.  With a wonderful main performance from Jayd Johnson as ambitious newspaper copy 'boy' Paddy Meehan and with an esteemed supporting cast, this drama brilliantly drums up the early 1980s.  Let's hope it does get a broader airing, but in the mean time don't miss it and catch it on iplayer.
