BBC announces new Aberdeen-set crime drama Granite Harbour

Set in Aberdeen and starring rising talents Romario Simpson and Hannah Donaldson, Granite Harbour is a new three-part drama series for BBC Scotland, BBC One and Player announced by the network.

Granite Harbour centres on the story of Lance Corporal Davis Lindo (Simpson) who arrives in Aberdeen as a new recruit to Police Scotland.

Having completed his final tour with the Royal Military Police, Lindo dreams of being a detective at New Scotland Yard. However, he finds himself being sent to train as a Detective Constable in the North East of Scotland, he must quickly adapt to his new life in Aberdeen, a world away from anything this soldier has known before.

Lindo finds an ally in his mentor, DCI Tara ‘Bart’ Bartlett (Hannah Donaldson), a razor-sharp, streetwise Aberdonian who is used to going solo. Together, this unlikely partnership must navigate the choppy waters of their first case – the murder of one of Aberdeen’s most recognisable faces from the Oil Industry. Suddenly, Lindo and Bartlett find themselves thrust into a corporate battle between old and new energy.

Alongside Dundee-born actress Donaldson, other leading Scottish acting talent joining the cast include Dawn Steele, Gary Lewis and Fiona Bell.
