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.

another season of Top boy
21 February 2017 | by sholacole-43023See all my reviews

From the trailer on channel four to the actual Top Boy series showings - Top Boy is a brilliant drama series showing the London Street life. The shows had been nominated and won many TV entertainment awards and is one of those gripping dramas that if you have it on box set you want to keep watching. I got through the two series of Top Boy in eight hours. The acting was great by both the actors and those acting who are grime artists such as scorcher, Asher d and Kano. Top Boy should have come back for another series as its story line is excellent which not only shows the perspective of adults in London's gangs but also the children's perspective in organised crime.Top Boy is a cleverly, well written drama with good soundtracks and a good London drama
