Two BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisations, starring Brian Cox as McLevy, Siobhán Redmond as Jean Brash and Michael Perceval-Maxwell as Mulholland.
Inspired by the real-life memoirs of a Victorian Inspector in Scotland, James McLevy prowls the dark streets of 1860s Edinburgh bringing criminals to justice, with the assistance of Constable Mulholland.
'Servant of the Crown' sees the Queen visiting Edinburgh. A royal procession down Princes Street is planned, but the recent Crimean War has stirred up extreme political feeling and she could be in grave danger. McLevy and Mulholland join Her Majesty's protection squad in a desperate hunt for a deadly assassin... In 'The Picture of Innocence', a high court judge is dead and suspicion falls on his wife. Her alleged adultery with a fashionable portrait painter suggests a strong motive for murder, but she protests her innocence and turns to McLevy for help.
Written by David Ashton.

“Please could we have more McLevy recordings released - the new ones are good but the old ones are very good too, in fact in some ways I enjoyed them even more, and I would love to have the whole collection. The dramatisation with plenty of dry wit and superb casting is truly excellent! ”
