Adam Smith: The Complete Series 1
Set in a fictional Scottish village, Adam Smith traces a church minister’s struggle to rediscover new meaning in life following the death of his wife. Opening at a crisis point for the grieving minister, the series chronicles his recovering sense of purpose, deep commitment to his spiritual work, and also the opposition he sometimes faces within the close-knit community he serves with deep devotion and sympathy. Poor housing, religious differences and marital breakdowns are just a few of the issues to be dealt with, the manse often serving as a refuge for local victims of circumstance; this first series also finds Adam making a decision that could change his life forever.
Cult favourite actor Andrew Keir stars as Adam Smith, with Oscar nominee Tom Conti as the minister’s sharpest critic, local doctor Andrew Calvi. Brigit Forsyth is Adam’s daughter, Annie, who also takes an active role in his work; in her final television role, Golden Globe winner Janet Munro stars as troubled parishioner Elizabeth Crichton. Written primarily by Oscar-nominated Trevor Griffiths (Bill Brand) series one was planned as a thirteen-episode series, though only twelve were ever transmitted. Previously unseen, the untransmitted episode is included here for the first time.
