Storyline

A thriving but underground drugs business is being run by Dushane ('Ashley Walters') and his friend Sully (Kane Robinson) to become the richest men on the block. To live rich Dushane and Sully go into partnership with top don Bobby Raikes ('Geoff Bell (I)'). Rivalry with Kamale (Scorcher) and his gang results in their loan from Raikes being stolen, and they swear revenge. Thirteen-year old Ra'Nell (Malcolm Kamulete) gradually gets lured into the gang and drug business as his mother Lisa (Sharon Duncan-Brewster) has a breakdown and is hospitalised - with devastating consequences.

Simply Brilliant
23 August 2013 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I watched all 4 episodes in one night. That's not usual for me and is a sign of the quality of this series. It's got a great central plot and builds tension to the big events as good as any Hollywood film, maybe better! The characters are interesting, although sometimes it does go a bit Sopranos...

Anyway I tried to get into the Wire (which has some comparisons), but as someone living in London I loved this so much more. This will no doubt get re-made in the US within no time with Ice Cube playing Dushane. I don't care really as long as the keep making Top Boy here in London. Can't wait for series 2 and onwards!
