TV Advocates, The (ITV 1991-1992, Rachel Weisz, Michael Kitchen) Published 3 years ago on June 13, 2016 Edinburgh set crime drama series The Advocates follows law firm Dunbar & Partners as they deal with some of the cities less salubrious characters. Two three part serial were produced and in the first new boy to the firm Greg McDowell is asked by local doctor Joe Sangster who is convinced that the death of a young prostitute was in fact murder not a drug overdose. Greg’s investigations lead him to a health clinic which has been targeted by a drug dealers. In the second three part series which was subtitled Above The Law, McDowell finds himself investigating when a Crown Prosecutor is arrested for the murder of his wife. Meanwhile the rest of the team are caught up in a case involving the murder of a busker. Katharine Dunbar, who is head of the firm, discovers that the two murders may be linked… Kind of like a distaff side to Taggart The Advocates first three parter was popular enough to allow for a second three part story the following year, that was that though and a series wasn’t forthcoming. Isla Blair and Stella Gonet headlined but Ewan Stewart took the bulk of the plaudits as McDowell. There were strong guest roles too for a young Rachel Weisz as well as the likes of Robert Carlyle, Shirley Henderson, Siobhan Redmond and the fabulous Michael Kitchen. production details UK / ITV Network – ScottishTV / 6×60 minute episodes / Broadcast 2 April 1991 – 23 March 1992 BROADCAST DATES: Serial One: 2 – 16 April 1991 / Serial Two: 9 – 23 March 1992 Writer: Alma Cullen (episodes 1-3), John Cooper (episodes 4-6) / Producer: Murray Ferguson / Director: Peter Barbar-Fleming main cast ISLA BLAIR as Katherine Dunbar STELLA GONET as Alex Abercorn EWAN STEWART as Greg McDowell MICHAEL BYRNE as Campbell Reid JONATHAN HACKETT as Dr Joe Sangster HUGH ROSS as Archie Hoseason JONATHAN BATTERSBY as Riley JOE DUNLOP as Walsh ALISON PEEBLES as Vivien Liddell ELSPETH MACNAUGHTON as Libby CLIVE RUSSELL as Chief Inspector Ross SEAN MURRAY as Det Sgt Coutts serial one cast SHIRLEY HENDERSON as Andrea CAL MacANINCH as Milligan ANGUS McLENNAN as Joss Reid PETER ARMITAGE as Len Veitch ANNE KRISTEN as Nancy McDowell SANDY WELCH as David Strachan DAVID McKAIL as Roderick Lennox JENNIFER PIERCEY as Heather Lennox ROY SAMPSON as Dougie Allen TAM DEAN BURN as Paul Ackroyd KATHERINE STARK as Mrs Tate MELANIE McCREADY as Julie Tate MARK NIVEN as Dominic Tate serial two cast MICHAEL KITCHEN as James McCandlish HUGH FRASER as John Naismith SIOBHAN REDMOND as Janie Naismith RACHEL WEISZ as Sarah Thompson JAMES FLEET as Philip Jackson ANDREW MELVILLE as Andrew Hanson JACK FORTUNE as Dominic Lawson BERNARD HORSFALL as Lord Thornhill FINLAY WELSH as Malcolm Davies STUART HEPBURN as DCI Michael Smith ROBERT CARLYLE as DC Murray MICKY MacPHERSON as Paul Lucas Alma CullenBernard HorsfallCal MacaninchClive RussellCrime And MysteryEwan StewartHugh FraserIsla BlairITVJames FleetMichael ByrneMichael KitchenPeter ArmitagePeter Barbar-FlemingRachel WeiszRobert CarlyleSandy WelchScottish TVShirley HendersonSiobhan RedmondStella GonetTam Dean BurnTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes3 hours ago Victorian Sensations: Seeing and Believing Series Final Wed 5 Jun on BBC Four In the final episode of this series, psychotherapist Philippa Perry explores how the late Victorian passion for science co-existed with...
