Hamish Macbeth is based on a series of books of the same name and adapted by BBC Scotland television. The titular police officer was played by Robert Carlyle. Aided by his dog, a West Highland Terrier named Wee Jock, Hamish keeps the peace in his own way without undue reliance on the letter of the law, and with every intention of avoiding being promoted out of what is his ideal job. Running themes include the tensions caused by Hamish's attraction to both the local journalist Isobel Sutherland (Shirley Henderson) and the aristocratic Alex (Valerie Gogan); and the claimed supernatural powers of Hamish's friend and co-worker "TV" John McIver (Ralph Riach).
