Season 1, Episode 2
In this episode, Frankie Boyle travels from Edinburgh to Aberdeen and explores Scotland’s complicated relationship with language. In Edinburgh, he joins the crowds of the Fringe and goes to see a one-man show by the author of the critically acclaimed book The Poverty Safari, by Darren McGarvey. They discuss how language shapes who we are, how it can be used to exclude working class people from important debates and consider how best to climb down from high walls. Frankie also wants to find out why crime fiction has become such a literary phenomenon in Scotland. In a bar in Edinburgh’s affluent district of Morningside, Frankie meets best-selling author Val McDermid, finds out about the origins of Tartan Noir and learns her secret to creating realistic characters and dialogue. Travelling north, Frankie stays the night in a hotel that has links to the creation of one of the most famous literary characters in the world – Dracula.
