7 May 2004 | didi-5
superb variation on the seven deadly sins
This multi-part drama series was easily one of the best things to come on TV during the early part of the decade: as Len Green, former robber and crook going straight, Pete Postlethwaite put in a superb performance throughout. Each of the seven deadly sins forms the loose topic around which each episode is constructed. William Ivory's finest TV series yet managed to combine humour, pathos, anger, love, redemption, and surprise, while managing to retain the viewer's attention. Quite a feat.

Other members of the cast deserving the highest of praise include: Geraldine James, as Len's long-suffering wife; Neil Stuke, playing the slightly dumb Carl; Denise Black as local tart with a heart Matisse; and perhaps best of all, a staggeringly good performance from Frank Finlay as Len's Uncle Irving.

A series which makes you happy to be watching television, but sadly these kind of things are becoming ever thinner on the ground. If this one comes on near you, give it a go.
