Paul McGann plays Captain MacNab in "Kidnapped," CBBC's adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale, which airs at the end of February or early March according to the BBC Press office. Says the report: "Iain Glen stars as Alan Breck and James Anthony Pearson as Davie Balfour in Stevenson's tale of treachery, romance and rebellion, along with Paul McGann as Colonel McNab, Adrian Dunbar as Uncle Ebenezer, Gregor Fisher as James of the Glens and Kirstin Smith as Catriona. Kidnapped chronicles the adventures of Breck and Balfour as they escape murder and shipwreck on a quest for justice, all set against the fierce social and political backdrop of 1760s Scotland. The BBC is working with South Pacific Productions (makers of the Oscar nominated film Whale Rider) on location in New Zealand."
