The Field of Blood
Based on the crime novels of Denise Mina, this series stars Jayd Johnson as Paddy Meehan, a gutsy young reporter-in-training, who often finds herself in the middle of the crime stories she's covering.
Amidst the gritty Glasgow of the early 1980s, Paddy is struggling to make a name for herself in the macho newsroom of the Daily News. At work, Paddy is up against hardened reporters who doubt her; at home, she's fighting her rigid Catholic family, who just want her to get married. But Paddy's passion for digging into the darkest corners of the city comes first. She's not above crossing a few lines to get to the truth-and that dedication often puts her in the crosshairs, not just with her sexist colleagues, but with the desperate subjects of her stories.
