BBC radio detective series

James McLevy was a real life Edinburgh policeman in the early / mid 19th century, and Edinburgh's first detective. He wrote on his work and is said to have inspired Arthur Conan Doyle.

Writer and actor David Ashton re-imagined McLevy and invented "The Happy Land", Edinburgh's finest bordello. He later went on to write 12 series of plays about McLevy, brothel keeper Jean Brash, and others.
