Stonemouth BBC2, 9pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

Fans were dev­as­tated when Iain Banks, au­thor of The Crow Road and The Wasp Fac­tory, died in 2013, but his work con­tin­ues to find a new au­di­ence – and this two-part ro­man­tic mys­tery, adapted from his best­seller of the same name, should at­tract a few more con­verts. Chris­tian Cooke heads the cast as Ste­wart Gil­mour, who was run out of his home­town of Stonemouth by his girl­friend El­lie’s crim­i­nal fam­ily, the Murstons. Now two years on, he’s re­turn­ing for his best friend Cal­lum’s fu­neral, and Don Murston makes it clear that he’s still not wel­come.
