I had never seen this series, then a friend lent me series one while i was recovering from an operation, and OH MY GOD, i LOVED it. I managed to watch the first 2 stories before ordering the entire collection, and i watched every one straight away. The stories are just so absorbing, some made me laugh out loud (jim broadbent trying to commit suicide and the ceiling collapsing) some made me think, and some made me cry (the jodhi may story in particular).I would recommend the street to anyone, you will not be disappointed.

I really did not have any idea just how talented our actors and actresses were in Britain until I watched this drama.
Everything from the acting to directing and writing can only be described as world class,every episode pure genius.
Will Timothy Spall ever star in anything bad? I think not.

This is possibly the best TV series I have seen in a long long time. The writing, acting and production are superb, and the stories gripping. If there is anything to complain about, it would be that I wish some of the stories were given more time than an hour each to develop to their full potential.
Technically, the quality of the DVDs were generally good, but I have found some momentary pauses in the middle of certain episodes (about half a second or so each time). I would also have loved to see more behind-the-scenes footage about the production, more commentaries by the writer and director, and perhaps even some interviews with the actors. Still, with a series as good as this, I'd say this dvd set is worth every penny spent on it.

What can I say that hasn't been said by the other reviewers? I agree with every comment made! If you haven't seen this masterpiece yet, I really envy you; I wish I still had it to look forward to. Perhaps you could invite some good friends round, have a takeaway delivered and get some chilled wine from the fridge. A word of caution - don't just buy series one in order to try it out - you'll only have to wait for the other two to be delivered when you instantly order them, after viewing the first episode.

This is an outstanding drama about life behind the front door of ordinary working class families. It could be my street or yours, the characters are totally believable and their painful and tragic situations all too familiar. The actors of course make the stories believable, classic real performers without the unrealistic pseudo 'celebrity' tags, just great acting.

Not sure if you can call it acting as this series is so close to real life its hardly acting at all.
I watched series 3 on the Australian ABC channel and was captivated by it. Have now ordered the complete series and can't wait for it to arrive downunder.

Quite simply brilliant! I bought this DVD and never got more than 5 mins into the first episode before I put it away as I thought it was a bit slow possibly boring. I dragged it out two years later a couple of days ago to have another crack and have just realised that I've been sitting on gold all this time. Watched the whole 3 Series over a couple of (late) night sittings. Had no idea that I could be so moved by brilliant acting and good storylines. The poms are definitely blessed with an abundance of acting talent judging by the performances here from the adults right down to the children. I've laughed but mostly I've been moved to tears not because I found it depressing rather I found myself getting caught up in the emotion of it all. Well done to all concerned great entertainment. My only gripe is that it has all ended. Particularly liked the way a minor character in one episode would be a major character in the next, kinda found myself trying to guess who would be the lead character in the next storyline. Do yourself and purchase this if you enjoy brilliant acting and like to be taken on an emotional ride. AAA

What a marvellous series - true grit. Every story hit the mark although I would have to say that the last series is more general than the earlier two but that does not take anything away from its drama qualities. As someone who lives in Hong Kong I am deprived of good television drama so this series was Godsent. Great acting, marvellous stories and beautifully acted, If you enjoy real British drama by one of the country's best writers then snap-up this fine 3-disc offering.

Having been out of the UK for over 20 years, I am totally out of touch with British TV. I took a chance and bought the DVD set "The Street" and am not disappointed. Brilliant acting and good story lines. Well worth it.
