Based on the best-selling novel by Ian Rankin, Doors Open is set in Edinburgh and tells the story of a self-made millionaire, an art professor and a banker who come together to undertake an art heist. The trio plots to rip-off one of the most high-profile targets in the country – Edinburgh’s private art collection owned by a national bank. Incensed by wealthy patrons hiding works of art away in private collections, they devise a plan to swap priceless masterpieces stored in the gallery’s warehouse with brilliantly accurate forgeries. Doors Open stars Stephen Fry as art expert Professor Gissing, Kenneth Collard as banker Allan Cruickshank and Dougie Henshall as Mike Mackenzie, a self-made businessman with too much time on his hands. The two hour TV movie was produced by Stephen Fry’s Sprout Pictures and was shot on location in Edinburgh, Scotland.
