The Victim readies to film in Scotland
BBC One is continuing its commission of drama to film in Scotland with The Victim, which is currently eyeing a spring start to filming.
The contemporary legal thriller will comprise 4 x 60 and portrays a criminal trial in Scotland seen through the eyes of the plaintiff and the accused, and exploring who is really the victim.
Written by Rob Williams, the executive producers are Sarah Brown and Williams for STV Productions, and Elizabeth Kilgarriff and Gaynor Holmes for BBC One.
Brown said when the drama was announced: “It's particularly exciting to be making a drama set and shot in Scotland, and to be able to tell a story which is both totally rooted in its setting, and yet utterly universal in its concerns.”
