Good but not great write of a recently common theme
10 June 2004 | by wombat_1See all my reviews

We in Australia have recently had quite a few British dramas focusing on women. There was that god-awful piece of crap "Footballer's Wives", and there was another one whose name escapes me now about some relatively glamorous women who stole some money.

Here, on the other hand, they are plain grey women, your "salt of the earth", who like some policemen, simply succumb to overwhelming temptation. You can't help but like them, to cheer them on. As usual, things start well and then turn to mud, but what would drama be without that?

The very ending, the last two minutes, is an excellent surprise. If indeed this is based on a true story (uhh, I don't always believe the producers when they say that), then it's quite a good one.
