Doors Open is a 2012 Scottish thriller heist film directed by Marc Evans,[1] starring Douglas Henshall, Stephen Fry,[2] Lenora Crichlow[3] and Kenneth Collard. It is based on the novel of the same name by Ian Rankin, about a self-made millionaire, an art professor and a banker, who come together to undertake an audacious art heist.[4] The film was commissioned by ITV and produced by Stephen Fry's Sprout Pictures production company. It was officially released on 26 December 2012 in the UK.


After an evening’s drinking with Professor Gissing (Fry), an art expert, and banker Allan Cruickshank (Collard), self-made millionaire Mike McKenzie (Henshall) and his friends dream up a plot to rip-off one of the most high-profile targets in the country – Edinburgh’s private art collection owned by a national bank. When he hears the love of his life, art consultant and auctioneer Laura Stanton (Crichlow), has returned to Edinburgh, his whole world is turned upside down and he'd risk anything to get her back.[5]



Filming began on 23 April 2012 in Edinburgh. Parts of the film were also shot on the coast of the Scottish Borders and Garvald, East Lothian.[6]
