24-year-old Carl Galton represents a new kind of London gangster. In his relentless pursuit of wealth and status, signalled by luxury cars and designer clothes, Carl is brutally effi cient and has scant regard for any traditional notions of honour. Following his brother s death in an East-End bar brawl, his focus shifts from protection rackets in North London to the territory of the oldschool East-End firms - and he is prepared to use any means necessary to establish dominance there. Acclaimed Edinburgh-born actor Iain Glen (The Diary of Anne Frank, Silent Scream) perfected a London accent for his stunning performance as the predatory, Armani-clad gang leader in this chillingly authentic 1988 drama from Thames Euston Films. Directed by the award-winning Stuart Orme (The Sculptress) and featuring an impressive supporting cast - including Susannah Harker (House of Cards), Jerome Flynn (Soldier, Soldier), Jesse Birdsall (Bugs) and Anthony Valentine (Colditz, Callan) - The Fear is a disturbing snapshot of a hidden London, released here for the first time in home video format. Special Feature: brand-new commentaries on first and last episode with Iain Glen, Producer Jacky Stoller and Director Stuart Orme.

The drama abounds with fine acting. Apart from the cool, detached and cynical lead from Iain Glen there is fine back up from Jesse Birdsall and Susannah Harker as best friend and wife respectively.
I waited years for this to appear on DVD and held little hope that it would. It seemed a forgotten masterpiece from a time when the scope and ambition of tv tried to match feature films. Now it is here, I would advise you to buy this as soon as possible and experience The Fear!
Great performances from some of the cast include Iain Glen and Jesse Birdsall, wonderful interaction and chemistry that take the viewer on the journey that is the lives of low level Londan gang and gangster culture, It is a great watch, I'm remembering when I was allowed to stay up late to watch it when it was on TV, it was so fresh and powerful at the time. Of course, things have changed over the years, not least the amount of violence shown and accepted on TV, yet The Fear still has the power to grip the viewer and force them to the edge of the their seat!
It was. A good piece of drama, concentrating on characters and good solid acting.
I have the memory of a sieve, so the mere fact I remembered it in the 1st place makes it good to start with :)
I found myself fast forwarding through large parts of boring sub plot. However this is no worse than any other dated 1980's crime drama.
