McLuckie's Line

19:30, 29 Sep

Unemployed actor and compulsive gambler McLuckie waits nervously in a claustrophobic corridor of a Glasgow hospital. He’s expecting the phone call he’s been waiting for his whole life – what could go wrong? Place your bets!

Starring Martin Docherty who has previously appeared in Still Game, Rab C Nesbit, Dear Green Place, River City, Gary: Tank Commander, Father Brown and Cloud Atlas with Tom Hanks. Marty Goes To Hollywood, a documentary featuring Martin as himself, won a New Talent Bafta in 2015.
