    This looks to have been a Scottish only show but I reckon some forumites south of the border might be interested.

    Doors Open - Wednesday, December 26 | STV Player

    Light hearted heist drama with Stephen Fry, Douglas Hensall and others.

    I enjoyed it.

    It was certainly on ITV in the Granada area.

    It was quite enjoyable in a light throwaway kind of way - switch off and let it wash over you.

    Not as good as it could have been, particularly given a lot of very good actors.
    It seemed to be just put together, no real flow or care given to what happened to the characters.

    certainly was on in the London area last week, I enjoyed it too
    - Henshall always has that same troubled look

    It was alright, but I was hoping it would be a bit better given the cast & author of the source material. They either needed to up the comedy or drama aspects, as the whole thing was just a bit flat.

    & did I miss what happened to the third member of the trio? (The banker guy).
    Fry buggers off to India with his paintings & poor old lovestruck MILLIONAIRE Henshall gets the girl. So did the (now jobless) other guy end up driving a minicab for the rest of his life as he predicted?

    Quite poorly written imho. :lesson:

    Sprout Pictures made this show. Stephen Fry is one of the co-owners of the company.
