Murder Is Child's Play

Episode 1 of 2

Rival Glasgow gangsters compete for a coveted children's book award. Can the police duo halt gang warfare? Alastair Jessiman's comedy police drama stars Finlay Welsh.

When two rival Glasgow gang-leaders (and would-be children's authors) find themselves competing head-to-head for a prestigious literary award, it's up to Boxer and Doberman to stop full-scale gang warfare - especially with campaign to win "European City of Kindness".

Alastair Jessiman's comedy police drama features grizzled old-school detective, DI Bob Boxer - and his slightly less grizzled and more instinctive young sidekick, DS Shona Doberman.

It's a case of Taggart meet The Naked Gun as the duo take to the road in Boxer's arthritic Austin Princess...
