Storyline

Amongst the Desperation and fear growing in a crime ridden sink estate in northern England, one man becomes involved into saving what little decency and community life exists. It's the winter of 1974 power cuts and coal strikes cripple the country, which is reduced to a 3 day working week alongside Police 'centralisation'. Everything it seems is falling apart along with the community's only hope and protector, the nearly retired Detective Sergeant Barry Harrigan. Written by Vince Woods

Poor
24 September 2013 | by (Hampshire) – See all my reviews

Don't believe the ten star ratings. This is poor. Very poor.

Depressingly bad script, poor performances and visuals devoid of any soul.

Not sure how the producers managed to pour 1.3m into this steaming pile of doggy doo but someone, somewhere must be laughing their socks off.

Even by low TV movie standards this is terrible.

Stephen Tomlinson is no movie star and he proves it in what amounts to a dull, plodding and brow furrowed non performance. The rest of the cast from the evil pedophile and his crew to the rest of the depressingly familiar, seen a million times, figures that pop up are non-entities.

Harrigan is boring, depressing and instantly forgettable Another nail in the coffin of independent British film.
