Glasgow Kiss

by BBC (6pt) / Wall to Wall

Synopsis

Glasgow Kiss is a lovely six-part comedy series chronicling the personal and professional dramas in the lives of Stuart (a sport’s writer for a failing daily newspaper) and Cara (a troubleshooter who’s been brought in to turn the paper round).

The two are instantly attracted and begin an unexpected love affair. But the road to true love never runs smoothly: The beauty of Glasgow is revealed through glorious cinematography and the wit and emotions of the story are echoed in the vibrant green parks and dark Gothic architecture. A funny, touching and captivating romance.

Reviews

Glasgow Kiss has a feel-good debut script by the well named Stephen Greenhorn and is smartly directed by Jonny Campbell who has enrolled the city of Glasgow as a member of the cast. Anyone going on holiday and capable of such a feat should program their videos to avoid missing what is an extremely rare visitor to these shores, a cracking good love story.

Daily Mail, Peter Paterson

The impeccable Iain Glen plays Stuart, a recently widowed Glasgow sports reporter: A witty script and excellent lead performances (Glen and Sharon Small) made one relish the by-play between these inevitable lovers.

The Times

Iain Glen is a terrific actor. Unlike many stage actors he manages to pull in his performance for the small screen and play it minimally with his face.
