Saturday Night Radio Drama - Denise Mina- The Dead Hour

The Dead Hour by Denise Mina and adapted by Chris Dolan was broadcast on 9th October 2009.

Glasgow, 1984 - Cub reporter "Paddy" Meehan follows the police to a domestic dispute in which a female lawyer has been beaten up. 
Her partner at the house slips £50 into Paddy's hand and shuts the door. 
Next day the lawyer is found murdered.

Paddy: Amy Manson
Billy: Stevie Hannan
Neilson: Simon Donaldson
Trisha: Cara Kelly
Gourlay: Laurie Ventry
Sean: Paul Thomas Hickey
JT: Finlay McLean
Kate: Patricia Kavanagh
Sullivan: Andrew Clark
Burns: Grant O'Rourke
Ramage: Mark McDonnell

Director: Bruce Young

Another adaptation, but a superior one.  It's based on a novel which I haven't read but it's well done on its own terms.

I've got lingering symptoms of what's going around.  Low energy for a while I'd guess.
