Set in Edinburgh, this six-episode legal drama contrasts the high-powered and respectable world of the lawyers and advocates of the Scottish legal profession, with the sleazy and deadly existence of the city’s pimps, prostitutes and drug addicts. When a young prostitute is murdered by a deadly drug overdose, only Doctor Joe Sangster (Jonathan Hackett, Breaking the Waves), who has been treating her at the local health clinic, suspects foul play.
In fears of drugs and AIDS grow, his clinic faces threats from locals. Sangster turns to young lawyer Greg McDowell (Ewan Stewart, Florence Foster Jenkins), assisted by his colleague, Katherine Dunbar (Isla Blair, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade). In the second series, McDowell is hired by a man accused of murdering his own wife. He begins to suspect she may have been the victim of a serial killer, and his investigation soon puts his own girlfriend, Sarah (Rachel Weisz, The Favourite), in danger. Other stars in the series include Shirley Henderson (The Nest), Clive Russell (Catherine the Great), Michael Kitchen (Foyle’s War) and Siobhan Redmond (Grantchester.)

Based in Edinburgh, Detective Inspector Rebus is tough and street-savvy with a great sense of humor and a taste for romance. Although battling with problems in his personal life, Rebus tackles crimes that lead to the revelations of his mysterious past, fighting weaknesses as well as dealing with the consequences of human frailty. From small-time criminals to haunted cases from the past, Rebus's investigations lead him through the city's ancient beauty and into its more sinister quarters.
This series is based on the Rebus novels of Ian Rankin.
- Season 1 of Rebus is currently available on BritBox. Though not yet confirmed, we wouldn't be surprised to see the rest of the seasons pop up over there after a while.
