Reviews

Double-bill of television adaptations of the Martina Cole novels. In 'The Jump' (1998), when her husband George (Jonathan Cake) is put behind bars for a brutal armed robbery, Donna Brunos (Susan Vidler) becomes convinced of his innocence. She enlists the help of ex-con Alan (Adrian Dunbar), planning to spring George from prison, but soon becomes sucked into a dangerous criminal underworld. 'Dangerous Lady' (1995) follows the rise and fall of the Ryans, an Irish family who became one of the most feared band of crime lords in the gangland world of London in the 1960s. It focuses upon their daughter Maura (Susan Lynch), who proves to be the most dangerous of them all.

A HIGHLY ENJOYABLE CRIME THRILLER FROM THE CRIMINALS POINT OF VIEW. SADLY NOT AS GOOD AS THE BOOKS BUT STILL GRIPPING VIEWING. THIS DOUBLE DVD SET FEATURES 2 FOUR HOUR LENGTH DRAMAS THE JUMP AND DANGEROUS LADY. ANYONE WHO HAS READ MARTINA COLES BOOKS WILL KNOW HOW GRIPPING AND INVOVLVING THEY ARE WELL THESE DRAMAS ARE BASED ON THE BOOKS THOUGH I MUST ADD WITH SEVERAL CHANGES BUT HEH THIS HAPPENS WITH MOST SCREEN ADAPTATIONS OF THE BOOK.

MY MUM WHO HAS READ BOTH THE BOOK AND VIEWED THE PROGRAMMES CANT RATE IT HIGHLY ENOUGH IF YOU LIKE A GANGSTERS MOLL TYPE DRAMA THEN THIS IS FOR YOU STRONG INDEPENDANT WOMEN TAKING MEN ON IN A VIOLENT CRIME FUELED WORLD AND WINNING GREAT VIEWING

GREAT STORYLINES GREAT ACTING WELL WORTH IT AND FOR THE PRICE 8 HOURS VIEWING A BARGAIN

I have read both these books as i am a big fan of martina cole.
But was very dissapointed by the way they have made these films.
The films thereselves are great, nothing on the books though.
But it's the editing of the actual films. They have been recorded of the tv, over several weeks. But the havent cut out all the words coming up at the end of each programme. Its like a series just been transfered on to dvd.
Which is a real shame, as the stories are fab.
And the films dont go on as long as the books, so they end a bit weird. Probably not if you have never read the books.
But dissapointing if you have.

One of the best ever dvds would be the type of film for those cold wet winters as it has two films per dvd and they each last for hours.

I have been a Martina Cole fan for a few years now and have all her books. I really wanted to own the DVDs. I think they were very well done. The stayed quite true to the books. I enjoyed them very much.

Having read most of her books,I decided to watch the film. ALL films are different from the books for obvious reasons, but the film was good nonetheless.

I read the reviews, some good some bad, having read all of the books to-date I decided to order the double bill d v d The jump. What a mistake, copied straight from the T V even the breaks were left in, no adds just a blank scene. The acting! do me a favour, I sometimes pass on the d v d this one went straight in the bin.Save your cash, don't buy this.
