“Crammed with sly menace and even slyer wit. Taking itself seriously when you least expect it and undercutting the nastiest of stuff with seaside postcard humour, it's the most exciting thing on telly.” Evening Standard
Strip clubs and seedy hotels, intrigue and deception, unspeakable secrets and unbelievable depravity--this is Blackpool, where you can be whoever you want to be, however fantastic or bizarre. But always at a price. Carter Krantz arrives in Blackpool to avenge the death of his mother. Without a penny to his name, he carries only a fragment of paper containing the words ‘Ambrose Chapel’. Also in town are the Suttons, Dudley and Lola, hoping a dirty weekend at the Shangri-la Guesthouse will spice up their marriage. They are about to find themselves caught in a nightmare rollercoaster ride driven by the dysfunctional Woolf family.
The Woolfs are at the heart of everything that happens in Blackpool. There’s Shirley Woolf, nightclub owner and borderline psycho, his foolhardy wife Connie and his mother, the evil and manipulative Mercy, a vicious matriarch who runs every racket in town: protection, intimidation and extortion. Twisting and turning, the story unravels with surprises, shocks and dark, dark humour, plunging into mystery and menace--because once you’ve visited Funland, there’s no going back.Special Features:
