Kidnapped is a two-part BBC television adaptation of the 1893 novel of the same name by Robert Louis Stevenson. The show is directed by Brendan Maher and stars James Anthony Pearson as Davie Balfour and Iain Glen as Alan Breck.
Among the plot deviations from novel to movie:
The movie added a love interest for Davie in Catriona, the daughter of James of the Glen. This plot element is from the sequel novel, Catriona.
In the novel, Breck and James of the Glen were never arrested by the British; but the movie showed James of the Glen being falsely arrested with the threat of being hanged to force Breck to give himself up.
The movie added the "Long Mile Gang", expert trackers, to track Davie and Breck across Scotland, but the novel only had British troops.
