From the ITV Press Centre:
The story follows Mike Mackenzie, played by Dougie Henshall, a self-made businessman with too much time on his hands. Bored by the comfort of his millions and grieving for the woman who walked out on him five years previously, he’s got an adventurous side just waiting to get him into trouble. When he hears the love of his life, Laura Stanton, art consultant and auctioneer, has returned to Edinburgh, his whole world is turned upside down and he’d risk anything to get her back.
After an evening’s drinking with close friends art expert Professor Gissing played by Stephen Fry; and banker Allan Cruickshank, Mike dreams up a plot to rip-off one of the most high-profile targets in the country – Edinburgh’s private art collection owned by a national bank. Incensed by wealthy patrons hiding works of art away in private collections, the trio devises a plan to swap priceless masterpieces stored in the gallery’s warehouse with brilliantly accurate forgeries.
Crichlow plays the role of Laura Stanton.
Doors Open airs on ITV1 @9PM, on Boxing Day.
