Ken Stott IS Rebus! In a TV interview I saw, Ian Rankin admitted that he saw Ken Stott's face whilst writing the later Rebus books.
Although I have a great deal of respect for John Hannah as an actor, I feel he was badly mis-cast in the role, being far too young at the time to play Rebus. I have heard that the episodes in which Hannah played Rebus, the stories were much closer to the actual books by Ian Rankin, I don't feel that this matters that much; after all, Rebus fans have all probably already got the books!
The episodes on this DVD are
The Black Book; A Question of Blood; Strip Jack and Let it Bleed.
Buy the DVD, sit back to watch without those terrible, aggravating TV adverts; don't expect carbon copies of the original books, and ENJOY!
