About Hector

Based on the true story of a crofter's son who became a Knight of the Realm and Queen Victoria's favourite general - this touching drama shines new light on the Scottish legend and fallen hero Sir Hector MacDonald.

Rising from humble beginnings through the ranks of the British Army, he became a hero of the Battle of Omdurman. Following his appointment as Commander of Ceylon, allegations of scandalous liaisons surfaced.

But was he guilty? Or was he the victim of a plot fabricated by an English Establishment to remove a Gaelic-speaking upstart who got above himself?
