David Morrissey as a beleaguered Glaswegian news editor is just one of the things to enjoy in this second series of 'Field of Blood', set in a newsroom of the 1980s.

Based on 'The Dead Hour', the second of Denise Mina's Paddy Meehan novels, this two-parter follows the aftermath in the newsroom of the death of a human rights lawyer. Our heroes here are following the story, but there are powers that be who do not want it told.
