The Blackhouse Episode 2 of 4

Drama serialisation of Peter May's bestselling crime novel set in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Starring Cal MacAninch (HOLBY BLUE, MR SELFRIDGE) and Derek 'Pluto' Murray (MACHAIR and Radio nan Gaidheal).

Detective Inspector Fin MacLeod has returned to the Isle of Lewis, where he was born and raised, for the first time in nearly twenty years. He's been drafted in to investigate a brutal murder with similarities to a case he's worked on in Edinburgh.

Progress is slow: the dead man, Angel MacRitchie, had a reputation as a violent bully; and locals don't want the investigation to halt the annual trip to An Sgeir to hunt for gannets - a tradition that dates back centuries. For Fin, the hunt stirs long-buried memories of a terrible tragedy which still haunts him two decades on.

An atmospheric thriller that explores dark secrets and the difficulties of escaping the past.
