Enter Civvy Street
29 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In the early 90s Lynda La Plante was hot property thanks to Prime Suspect and prolific as she is as a write, this was her BBC TV debut as a writer. La Plante admitted that her research showed that the life of the ex servicemen does not tend to be a happy one with some entering the life of crime, addiction, prison, break up in marriages and so this may not be destined to end up as happy ever after.

The series is about a group of ex-paratroopers who enter the world of private security whilst being tempted by a gangster played by Peter O'Toole with a mock cockney accent to do a shady job.

There are constant flashbacks to a pub explosion in Belfast which has left a legacy behind.

This series was the first time people saw Jason Isaacs and we have a heartfelt performance from Peter Howitt who plays a wounded colleague of the gang.
