reasonably gripping with some good acting and episodes.
on 26 June 2011
i had heard about this particular series some time ago and was glad to hear it had finally been issued on dvd.
it is a slightly different take on the subject of armed robbery and of criminals on the run: each episode is dedicated to one character who goes through the stages of being on the run, avoiding trouble at all costs and then finally having a chance to make good his escape or fail in the attempt. this is all well done and there is some brilliant writing and acting but the idea of having flashback scenes can become a bit confusing and also somewhat tiresome. however, this is still an enjoyable and gripping series, not to mention having a talented cast on hand with people like alun armstrong, bob hoskins, martin shaw, william marlowe, david dakar, paul eddington, timothy west included and other familiar faces.
