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>

superb variation on the seven deadly sins
7 May 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This multi-part drama series was easily one of the best things to come on TV during the early part of the decade: as Len Green, former robber and crook going straight, Pete Postlethwaite put in a superb performance throughout. Each of the seven deadly sins forms the loose topic around which each episode is constructed. William Ivory's finest TV series yet managed to combine humour, pathos, anger, love, redemption, and surprise, while managing to retain the viewer's attention. Quite a feat.

Other members of the cast deserving the highest of praise include: Geraldine James, as Len's long-suffering wife; Neil Stuke, playing the slightly dumb Carl; Denise Black as local tart with a heart Matisse; and perhaps best of all, a staggeringly good performance from Frank Finlay as Len's Uncle Irving.

A series which makes you happy to be watching television, but sadly these kind of things are becoming ever thinner on the ground. If this one comes on near you, give it a go.
