Long Forgotten - I'd Like To See It Again
9 February 2020 | by wilsonstuart-32346See all my reviews

I haven't rated this because I haven't seen it since it was first broadcast. I don't have too many memories. Only later I learned this was Shirley McKie's first acting role and am early appearance by Alan Cumming.

The story involved boats, and a ring of sacred stones in Inverclyde (one of many around Scotland). It drew from a long run of fairly dark, intense dramas aimed at young adults - think Chooky, Children of The Stones, The Dark Season or Dramarama.

I'd like to see it again after all these years
