THE ADVOCATES

Set in Edinburgh, the series contrasts the high powered and respectable world of the lawyers and advocates of the Scottish legal profession, with the sleazy and deadly existence of the city's pimps, prostitutes and drug addicts. When a young prostitute is murdered by a deadly drug overdose, only Doctor Joe Sangster (Jonathan Hackett, Breaking the Waves), who has been treating her at the local health clinic, suspects foul play. In the growing climate of fear over drugs and AIDS in the city, his clinic faces closure due to a local campaign. Sangster turns to young lawyer Greg McDowell (Ewan Stewart, Florence Foster Jenkins), assisted by his colleague, Katherine Dunbar (Isla Blair, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade). In the second series, McDowell is hired by a man accused of murdering his own wife. He begins to suspect she may have been the victim of a serial killer, and his investigation soon puts his own girlfriend, Sarah (Rachel Weisz, The Favourite), in danger. Other stars in the series include Shirley

Henderson (The Nest), Clive Russell (Catherine the Great), Michael Kitchen (Foyle's War) and Siobhan Redmond (Grantchester.) (6 EPS, 1991-1992)
