Storyline

Dolly Rawlins has just been released from prison after serving Five years (Stated on the credits of the original tv series . ) for the murder of her husband, Harry, following a robbery that she and several other women had carried out on a security van that Harry was planning to raid [see _"Widows" (1983) (mini)_ and _"Widows 2" (1985) (mini)_]. Having acquired a reputation in prison as a dominant and respected figure, and being apparently now a reformed character, Dolly teams up with a number of other ex-convicts: Gloria Radford (who had fenced stolen guns), Ester Freeman (who ran a brothel), Connie Stevens and Angela Dunn (prostitutes), Julia Lawson (a drug dealer) and Kathleen O'Reilly (a forger). Dolly and the other women make plans to set up a children's home in a derelict Victorian house. But Dolly is planning one final armed robbery on a mail train. The other women want a share in the proceeds in this robbery - but they are also secretly planning to get their hands on Dolly's ... Written by Martin Underwood <imdb@martinunderwood.f9.co.uk>

where are all of the other reviews (UK)?
27 July 2004 | by vhsivSee all my reviews

I picked this DVD up on a lark, because I'm a tremendous fan of the original 'Prime Suspect' series, though not LaPlante's later 'Killer Net' - 'Net' is an interesting premise, but could have benefited from better research.

Anyway, this was a pretty good feature - well drawn characters and an interesting storyline, even if it takes an abrupt left-turn toward the 2nd episode.

I won't go into the particulars, but if you're a fan of British Crime drama, and 'capers' in general, this miniseries is highly recommended. I was not familiar with Ann Mitchell's work, but she's tremendous here in an ensemble cast that's nothing short of spectacular.

I'm really surprised that this miniseries hasn't shown up on either Masterpiece Theater or BBCAmerica. Here's to hoping! Catch it if you get the opportunity.

7/10
