Description: New series of Victorian detective mysteries starring Brian Cox as Inspector James McLevy.
Leith Town Hall & Sheriff Court
Absolutely love these episodes, now in its seventh series. There is a grand chemistry between the radio dramatis personaes of Brash and McLevy. I do, however, urge you to read McLevy’s original writings. I think you will notice that he put away a fair few people that were suspect suspects.
Episode one: The Firebrand: McLevy investigates the kidnap of a women’s rights campaigner.
Episode Two: Dead Reckoning: Inspector McLevy investigates a curious case of grave robbing.
Episode Three: Prince of Darkness: Jean Brash is confronted by a former lover back from the dead. She had once poisoned him – fatally, or so she thought – and now he is out for revenge. Meanwhile, McLevy dreams of death by drowning. Is it a premonition or just the result of drinking too much coffee?
Episode Four: A Distant Death. McLevy’s dreams of death by drowning are about to become a reality when he and Jean Brash are trapped in a sea cave while the tide rushes in. Outside the cave a rifle marksman is ready to shoot them if they try to escape.
