Storyline

Len Green is a bank robber. During his long career as a getaway driver, he has served many sentences and spent a fair proportion of his life behind bars. Now middle-aged, with a very expensive house (bought with the proceeds of the robberies), and an attractive wife and four grown-up daughters to whom he is devoted, he resolves to change his lifestyle. This time he will "go straight". But having joined his Uncle Irwin in the family firm of undertakers, he is faced with many temptations, in the form of the seven deadly sins (envy, greed, lust, etc), which test his resolve to stay out of trouble. His mates want him to help out in one last robbery. His wife, who can't accept that she will no longer having a steady (although criminal) income, steals a priceless necklace; will Len be the first robber to be jailed for breaking into a jewellers to *return* something? After so many years in prison, does his wife still love him - and can he still satisfy her in bed? Written by Martin Underwood <imdb@martinunderwood.f9.co.uk>

A pleasure to observe
26 April 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This programme is quite simply superb, These days you have to look hard to find something remotely worth while watching. But the Sins is a programme the makes you laugh and cry, a lesson in good living, how to look after your self and your most loved ones. The cast is composted of stars and Pete Postlethwaite, as usual is top notch. The scripts good and the stories are brilliant in that they deal with life in a surprisingly short space of time in great detail.

Conclusion One of the best Tv dramas in the last 10 years.
