5.0 out of 5 stars excellent drama
Samantha Morton shines in this drama series about the lives of 5 prostitutes. Series one has been available on VHS and DVD but the far superior and much more shocking series two was never released. Definitely worth watching especially the second series but watching from one to three is well worth the effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars MIxed bag, 2 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This set contains all 3 series and therefore is a little uneven. The first series is very good with a raw feel, good acting and earthy dialogue. The jewel in the crown however is the second series, Samantha Morton's performance is staggeringly good with excellent support from the rest of the cast. The story is well written and gritty with few real failings. It has to be said though that Series 3 is a disappointment; it has lost the rawness and edge that made the previous 2 series so good. Still well worth buying for series 1 & 2 though.

Absolutely superb. I had missed a couple of episodes when it was screened. Being able to sit and watch at my convienience was a pleasure. Geraldine James is at her best and Barbara Dickinson plays a very good role.
Not to be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars wanted to find out what this was about..., 10 Nov. 2007

I have just finished watching series one and I was blown away..
My feelings regarding these woman were very sad to say the least..
I knew very little about their lives and their survival in a very tough and cruel world..
My heart ached for the children.. how many times have we ever given much thought to them..
it has really opened my mind to their lifestyle and the heartbreak it causes...
Also how many times are they condemned without us really knowing how difficult their lives are...
I am also wondering how much help is out there for the children and their mothers...

5.0 out of 5 stars THE VERY BEST TV DRAMA EVER!!!, 13 Feb. 2006

i have waited from 1995/96 when the whole of the three series of band of gold was shown, until now for them all to be released on dvd. band of gold is fantastic. kay mellor who wrote this and many other brilliant drama,s is at her best writing for this hard hitting three part series. if this was a book it would be un put down able. the caracters are very real. the story line has every thing to grip you... murder, mystery, heart ache and humour. fantastic acting. fast moving and exciting plot. what more could you want? if you are a fan of things like bad girls, prisoners cell block H and Fat friends (also by Kay Mellor)then you are in for a real treat. realistic women who are far from "perfect" yet very true to life. some times you see things on telly years ago and you think they were great at the time, then you watch them again ten years later and they seem rubbish and dated. this i am glad to say did not happend with band of gold. it was still riveting stuff and well worth the money. an absolute corker. would recomend 110 %. i just carn,t under stand why it wasn,t released sooner!

5.0 out of 5 stars best ever!!!, 7 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Band of Gold: The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
This is one of the best series ever created for tv,a must watch.Barbara Dickson is brilliant as is Cathy Tyson,Geraldine James and Samantha Morton.Its very rare that the 2nd series is better than the 1st but in this case it is but the 3rd series called Gold was a big disapointment for me,having said that the 1st and 2nd series are in my top 5 all time list for t.v drama.

I can always remember watching this series on tv first time round and being totaly gripped every week.
It was the highlight of the week.
Now that all 3 series are in one box set i can't wait for mine to arrive tomorrow
I can't remember much about the third series 'gold' but the first 2 are great.
The second being crazy compaired with the 1st.
Great acting from all 5 main women in this and the stepping stone for samantha morton to greater things.(well not greater maybe bigger)
