The complete five-part drama about the supermarket employees whose lives are changed when they win the lottery. When a supermarket in Leeds looks likely to close down, it's staff, Bob (Timothy Spall), Stuart (Matthew McNulty), Denise (Lorraine Bruce), Leanne (Joanna Page) and Jamie (Matthew Lewis), begin to worry about their future. Their anxieties are put to rest, at least for the time being, when their lottery syndicate wins them 18 million pounds. However, it's not long before they realise that the money won't solve all their problems...

Outstanding. This is not really a comedy show but at times it makes me giggle. This programme is epic and is filled with gripping suspense, tension and many tears. The show is incredibly realistic and deals with people in tough times. The show left me shouting at the TV when I watched it because of its sly, funny, unpredictable and kind characters. The show is well directed and each episode will leave you gasping for the next. The show is simply OUTSTANDING and is highly recommended.

Anything that Timothy Spall is in will be good I presumed! I was right. A great mini series that I missed on the TV. Shows how money can alter your life for better or worse and also who you can really trust. Would make an ideal stocking filler. Prompt Amazon service once again!

A very good light drama, well played by an excellent cast. It shows that sex
scenes and swearing aren't always necessary,when the storyline is good and so
are the players. Every now and then a little jewel like this comes up, I'm glad
we still have writers of the calibre of Kay Mellor. Well done all round

I really enjoyed this show so was looking forward to buying it on dvd, unfortunately on the dvd each episode is missing almost 10 minutes of scenes for reasons unknown. Very unhappy as i paid good money.

this is a brilliant series, the acting is marvelous and it looks at the lives of all the syndicate winners, i think it is a tong in cheek look at the dream many people have about winning the lottery. it has very funny parts and heartbreaking parts. i found watching it on the TV compelling viewing and i have enjoyed watching it again on DVD.
