The Secret of Sales
19 April 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

In the previous episode Vincent's life was falling apart. Now he has a plan to get it back together and get enough cash together to pay off his £50k tax bill.

However this involves getting Ronnie the loan shark involved. He gives Vincent the cash to become a partner with Walsh at the double glazing firm. Vincent and Ronnie siphon the cash from the business, load it with debt without Walsh knowing and eventually he has to sell up for a pound. Leaving Vincent and Ronnie partners in the business but can Ronnie be trusted?

Over the course of this episode amoral Vincent puts Walsh out of his livelihood and out from his house, discards the primary school teacher like a dirty rag. Despite the comedy this is not a person you want to root for.

The first series of White Gold was a strong but uneven comedy, the problem is as Ed Westwick is unlikely to return for the second series, this means his character may have nowhere to go.
