Miss­ing Moira to be TV drama


A TELE­VI­SION drama is to be made about school­girl Moira An­der­son, who van­ished more than 50 years ago.

The pro­duc­tion com­pany be­hind smash hit Sher­lock will turn the story into a prime-time three-part pro­gramme.

Lon­don-based Hartswood Films will work from a script by San­dra Brown, who be­lieves her pae­dophile fa­ther Alexan­der Gartshore killed the 11-year-old from Coat­bridge, La­nark­shire, in 1957.

Mrs Brown said: ‘It’s now with the agents, who are ty­ing up the con­tracts.’

The drama is based on her best-sell­ing book, Where There Is Evil, which she wrote af­ter making a link be­tween her bus driver fa­ther and Moira, last seen on his ve­hi­cle.
