Hamish Macbeth Videos and DVDs

The first season of Hamish Macbeth is now on DVD.

DVD Season 1: 5 Episodes of the First Season

(DVD S/N - ******)

In the wild West of Scotland PC Macbeth is the only lawman in town. For lovers of the books by M. C.Beaton, the characters of the TV episodes are very different to the characters of the books. While Robert Carlyle, plays the title role, the series has an ensemble cast feel while the characters they portray are delightful, dark and bittersweet.

The first 5 episodes of the first season of Hamish. Missing is the Episode West Coast Story. No official reason has been given for its absence, most conclude that it stems from copyright issues. The plot seems to lean heavily on the music and storyline from the musical West Side Story.

Lochdubh: A frontier town in the wild west of Scotland. One hotel, one general store, one doctor and one lawman - PC Hamish Macbeth, with his own singular methods of dealing with crime and misdemeanours.

When a notorious bully disappears, and three hundred weight of salt go missing from the village shop, Hamish (and his canine side-kick, Wee Jock) sniff out the unsavoury connections.

Many a baffling mystery and outrageous scam lurk behind the closed doors of Lochdubh; and Hamish needs all his skill to keep the big boys from Inverness off his patch.

Filmed in and around the village of Plockton on the West Coast of Scotland

The Big Freeze, Wee Jock's Lament & A Bit of an Epic

(BBC Video S/N - BBCV 5842)

Welcome to Lochdubh on the wild West Coast of Scotland. Here PC Hamish Macbeth is the law - cool, practical - above all, a man who knows the Highland way of life.

On the streets of the village, Hamish has respect. TV John, Doc Brown, Rory the grocer, even the ne'r-do-wells Lachlan and Lachie Junior stick together. It's the "outsiders" who cause the trouble - and Hamish sorts it out in his own particular style.

Why must he convice the big boys from Inverness that the infamous Raspberry Ripple Gang has hit town? Does he have murder in mind as he stalks two escaped convicts who have brought tragedy on the village? Has Wee Jock, Hamish's beloved Westie, gone forever? And will a life-or-death experience on the mountain show him where his heart truly lies?"
