What can I say? I am over-obsessive about 'Band Of Gold'. It has to be one of the best TV series to this date. Kay Mellor has once again struck us with her witty and powerful writing, and Geraldine James has given another wonderful and memorable performance. Along with that, the rest of the cast of absolutely brilliant aswell! These stars include Samantha Morton, Cathy Tyson, Ruth Gemmell, Rachel Davies and the 'singer-fantastic' Barbara Dickson!
Gina Dickson (Ruth Gemmell), is roped into the world of prostitution, after she becomes in debt with banks, and chased by a loan shark. With the help of Carol Johnson (Cathy Tyson), Gina soon finds her live changes dramatically, when the worst thing that can happen to a prostitute, strikes! Written by Kay Mellor, creator of Fat Friends and Playing the Field.
As I said, I am obsessed, because I have the video, two novels based on the two series and a companion to the three series. I was very disappointed when I found that Band Of Gold II has been deleted from the UK, and Gold was never released! They should bring out a three-video cassette called 'Pure Gold', which contains every series made!
If anyone wants to talk 'Band Of Gold' please contact me. If anyone wants to sell me a copy of Band Of Gold II then once again, please contact me!
In conclusion, 'Band Of Gold' is pure genius!
