Product Description

It’s been a rough life for Ellie, Hannah, Josie and Shoo – all ex-cons with nothing to show for their lives – but not for much longer.

Today won’t be like any other day. Today they embark on the final stage of their long-held plan: To live out the rest of their lives on a beach in Barbados, courtesy of £3million stolen from Ellie's lying, cheating, violent gangster husband. If all goes to plan… but it doesn’t.

A cruel twist of fate, finds them on the run, as the glamorous girls end up in hiding in Hope Springs, a remote Scottish village, without passports, without a plan and more or less without hope.

If they can just hide their true identities and keep their heads down long enough to make a break for it - but Hope Springs has other things in store.

Format:DVD
This is the best drama series I have seen in a very long time. Fast-paced and totally gripping it has had me on the edge of my seat as I followed all the twists and turns of the plot. The characters of Ellie and the girls, Sadie and all the others are so well-developed that I soon felt as if I knew them all intimately. The Scottish scenery is too gorgeous for words and I felt as if I was breathing in that champagne clear air and walking the landscape. I have already watched it twice, each episode I wanted to know what was would happen next while at the same time wanting to linger in the moment. Eight episodes is far too short. I can't possibly understand why the BBC would declare that Hope Spring " did not reach it's target audience". Just bow to popular demand and give us a sequel, quick as!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hope Does Spring 30 Nov 2009
Format:DVD
Yes, hope does spring that there will be a sequel ... come on BBC, get on with it.

This is certainly something one could watch again and it would still be brilliant the second time around. With it's great cast of leading ladies, clever storylines with fun and interesting twists and turns I would definately recommend purchasing and watching this.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASIC! 13 Jan 2012
By Doc
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Witty, clever and highly entertaining.

I won't go into the plot too much because I don't want to spoil it but the end of each episode get's you thinking, 'how the heck are they going to get out of that one'!

Full of twists and turns with plenty of drama and comedy to boot.

With a plethera of fine actors, I defy anyone not to enjoy this series. Just a shame that it's not getting a follow up.

This is one of the best shows I have ever seen on the Beeb.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Series That Got Better and Better 28 July 2009
Format:DVD
I loved watching this on Sunday nights pn BBC One and can't wait to watch it again on DVD. A great cast with some great performances especially by Alex Kingston (ER), Anette Crosbie (One Foot in the Grave) and Lorraine McIntosh (Deacon Blue). Once established the story lines just got better and better and the Scottish scenery was always spectacular. Come on BBC give us another series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hope Springs 5 Dec 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We all loved this DVD, & wish the BBC would do a second series,
there's a lot of scope here for a follow up.
It was well cast,& they all seemed to gel together.
As a family, we have been lucky enough to visit the village
of Wanlochhead, where it was filmed.( It happens to be
the highest village in Scotland )& saw the various locations that
were used in it...absolutely stunning scenery.
Please bring it back, it cheered us up,& we need more progs like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally, the wife's seen the whole series ! 14 Oct 2009
Format:DVD
Unfortunately, we went on holiday and missed the last couple of episodes. All the missus wanted to do on our return, was to watch the finale. Now peace and calm have been restored as the last episodes matched the rest of the excellent series. Now having it to hand, she will be able to re-watch the whole shebang in a single sitting. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Birthday treat 1 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
I bought this because my father in law started to watch it when it was aired on television, it was so bad that it became a running joke that I would get him the DVD for his birthday or Christmas. Last month I was stuck for what to get him for his birthday so you can imagine how pleased I was when I found this on Amazon! It went down an absolute treat and we often have the rest of the family round for Hope Springs night.

4.0 out of 5 stars Alex Kingston holds this show together
I'm not going to lie, I bought this purely because I'm a huge fan of Alex Kingston. The plot leaves a lot to be desired and the twists are either predictable or ridiculous. Read more
