Three friends lives fall apart after an unusual stag night
6 April 1999 | by Rich BSee all my reviews

Ray Winstone is superb in this series, but both Mark Strong and Philip Davis provide fantastic support. After a slightly bizarre stag night the lives of the three friends start to fall apart, although Alan (Ray) tries his utmost to pull his friends back together, things are never the same again. Alan thinks money can solve everything, including hiding the past, but both himself and his friends soon learn otherwise. This mini-series has so much style you couldn't shake a stick at it. Although the ending leaves you feeling you want to know more, it's still worth the ride. BBC2 drama is definitely not dead.
