Storyline

The characterful drama focuses on an ordinary working class woman, Sam, who is caught between two worlds - the everyday life of a devoted and loving Mum and the darker, dangerous world of insider trading. Sassy office cleaner Sam is one of an invisible army of cleaners on a zero hours contract who mop, sweep and vacuum in the early hours. Struggling with an on-line gambling addiction, Sam realises she has access to lucrative Stock Market information which if used correctly could be the answer to all her prayers. Set in the contrasting worlds of shiny Canary Wharf and the realities of modern suburbia, Cleaning Up, explores how far Sam will go to survive, claw back some self-respect and get her life back on track.

Fails on all fronts
5 February 2019 | by andrewrye-06535See all my reviews

I was looking forward to this and tolerated a few episodes in the hope it would get better. I like Sheridan Smith but why is she continually smirking regardless of what emotion she is supposed to be having? I feel like she's mailed this performance in. The writing is dire and story line totally unbelievable. We are supposed to believe that she works all night, gets home gets the girls up who have been alone all night, feeds them and gets them to school then goes to another job? When does the poor woman sleep and why is she never tired? I won't go into her getting a stranger (guy) in to board with her two girls while she is away at work. Just put the nail in, there is no way cleaners have time to skulk around and plant recorders and then listen in. They work as a team doing the job as fast as possible and in a team. Two of them going missing would be noticed and they'd be sacked. So that's rubbish too. It's a shame really. Was a good story line, just handled incompetently. A bit of research and forethought may have elicited a higher score than 2 from me.
