Traces

Recommended Posts

New Detective series starts tomorrow on Alibi at 9.00pm.

Starring  Martin Compston it is set in Dundee and looks decent.

As a Dundonian living away I'll be watching to see how the home town is looking.

The acting in the first episode was horrific 😂

Have they got Dundee accents or is it Jute City all over again?

Didnt hear one Dundonian accent. It would show a Dundee landmark then next thing they were in a completely different place 😂

Did she genuinely go from England, to St Andrews and then to Dundee in the opening episode?

I was wondering about the locations. I watched the trailer on YouTube and it showed a scene in a nightclub that I didn't recognise so that was probably a studio some where.

Dundee seems to be the in place for tv and films these days. Succession, starring Brian Cox, filmed  an episode in the V&A recently. There's a film in the pipeline called Schemers, about a music promoter putting on gigs at the Caird Hall. There's another on its way called PTSD, starring the boxer Marc Navarro as a forces veteran whose sister has been kidnapped by the Albanian mafia. Kinda like a Dundonian version of Taken. A mate witnessed the kidnap scene being filmed outside Borzoni's chippy in Douglas.

it seems that Hollywood can't get enough of the iconic Dundee landmarks, like the V&A, the Caird Hall..... and Borzoni's.

I've not been around Dundee for a while but since when has Dundee Law been called "Law Hill"? 

And where is Lock Kee? 

And not one mention of a peh. 

Overall though, it was ok.

Locals always referred to it as the Lah Hill or going awah up the Lah. That's until 1980 anyway.

Yep, was always the Law Hill (AKA the Hill Hill)
