Storyline

Retired docker Don and his wife Dora live cautiously within their means. Their daughter Joanne, a single parent, struggles to make ends meet but their property developer son David has a very high life style, mixing in circles far removed from his working class upbringing. However it is a lifestyle financed by credit and soon his world has crashed and burned. His wife takes a supermarket job and his son sells his computer games at school to raise cash as the trio move in with Don and Dora. But David persuades his father to mortgage his home and come up with fifty thousand pounds for a supposedly sound investment. It is no such thing and Don loses the lot. Aware at last that his son is a selfish wheeler dealer, cheating on his wife, Don ends up in hospital after suffering a coronary. Can the family pull together and teach David some humility in order to restore mutual trust? Written by don @ minifie-1

David Jason on top form shame about the ending
21 December 2010 | by (cambridge) – See all my reviews

When I saw this was on last night and it had David Jason it was a no brainer, had to watch it. David Jason does drama well and this was no exception. There is also a little mix of humour which fitted the plot well. It's about a high flying property developer who finds himself out of work and out of money. David Jason plays his dad who is naive in his belief that his son is an honest person. Alison Steadman plays Jason's and she is as solid as ever.

It is quite touching, particularly his relationship with his grandson and daughter in law and his endeavour to keep the family together. I thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend anyone else to watch it - even if its just to see Jason with ginger hair and watch out for his Afro!!! The only thing that spoiled it for me was the ending. Not terrible but not up to the standard that went before.
