Storyline

Lots of Lochdubh - Not Enough Hamish
2 May 2018 | by GunnersMateSee all my reviews

The Trouble with Rory had plenty of quirky Lochdubhians, which was entertaining enough for portions of the episode, but there was too much convoluted subplot and not enough of the heart of Hamish. It was not romance that was lacking (though Hamish has been on quite a dry spell), but the heart that makes Hamish the protector of his beloved home. It the episodes that let us in on his emotional journey through the adventures, and around the people, of his village that make for the best episodes. So while the episode wasn't a poor one, it wasn't a great one either. Can be easily missed.
