Living side by side in isolated rural Scotland, the Elliot and Douglas families know each other inside out.However, when two of them are horrifically murdered, their lives are shattered and their relationships, both between and within the grieving families, are tested to the limit.The Olympics have kept us glued to our TVs for the last few weeks – but if you need some new evening viewing, you’re in luck.Brand new BBC thriller One of Us is here to bring some gripping drama of the murderous kind to your otherwise uneventful Tuesday night.
In the search for answers, skeletons are unearthed and old wounds are reopened, as honesty, loyalty and morality is all brought into question.
Everyone has secrets, but when the lines between right and wrong, good and bad, true and false, become blurred, what path do you take, and how do you cope with the lasting and deadly consequences.
Harry and Jack Williams say: One Of Us is part of the BBC’s commitment to produce distinctive Scottish output, and complements BBC Scotland productions including Stonemouth (BBC One Scotland & BBC Two), Shetland (BBC One), River City (BBC One Scotland) Sunset Song, Katie Morag (CBeebies), Bob Servant (BBC Four), Murder (BBC Two) and landmark series Highlands (BBC One).
If you’re not sure whether to watch the new Channel 4 drama, New Worlds, described as a ‘gripping’ historical drama set in the 1680s during the time of Charles II, we have two words for you: Jamie Dornan.
He’s had rumoured romances with Lindsay Lohan (see ‘The List’), Mischa Barton and Kate Moss, as well as dating Kiera Knightly, before marrying actress and singer Amelia Warner last year (who ‘married’ Colin Farrell in a fake wedding ceremony at the age of 19, just so you know). Dornan senior is a professor and eminent obstetrician who has delivered over 6000 babies. He made his film debut as Axel Von Fersen in Sophia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette in 2006.
He’s also written a book, called ‘Everyday Miracle’ (funny, that’s what we like to call Jamie), which you can buy on your Kindle now. He was in a folk band called Sons of Jim until 2008. He’s hot in a grey wig too – and when he’s blinking. He doesn’t like his walk MORE: Jamie Dornan changed the way he walked It’s too bouncy apparently.
