Glasgow Kiss (BBC 2007, Iain Glen, Sharon Small)

Iain Glen and Sharon Small light up the screen in a sexy, sharply written love story for grown-ups – proving that love is never simple. Cara’s career brings her home to Glasgow where old loves and strained relationships are waiting for her. Sports journalist Stuart is a widower and father trying to make ends meet, living in his memories and afraid to let go.

Their worlds collide when Cara is recruited to cut costs – and employees – at the evening newspaper where Stuart has worked for years. The death of his wife and caring for his five-year-old son have taken their toll on Stuart. But as he goes through the motions, a fervent desire to write a book burns within him.
