Granite Harbour Plot
Granite Harbour explores the new life of Lance Corporal Davis Lindo (Romario Simpson). Who aspires to work as a detective at New Scotland Yard after completing his final tour with the Royal Military Police. Instead, his aspirations are dashed and he is sent to Aberdeen to train as a detective constable. Which is completely foreign to all the soldier has ever known. Fortunately, Davis is teamed up with DCI Tara “Bart” Bartlett, his mentor, a streetwise, razor-sharp Scotsman who is used to working alone. Together, the unusual pair must look into the death of one of Aberdeen’s most recognisable oil sector figures, which forces them into a legal dispute.
