Rory Connor (Robson Green) knows what he wants and he knows he won't get it working as a rent collector in the slums of South Shields. Rory has no equal on the local gaming tables but he wants more than easy games and small rewards. Setting his sights on something much larger, he encounters the ruthless world of Frank Nickle (Bernard Hill) with life threatening results.
Marriage to his childhood sweetheart Janie (Stephanie Putson) comes to a dramatic end. Refusing to heed the disapproval of society and his working class family, he later marries the boss's daughter, Charlotte Kean (Sylvestra Le Touzel). But two things stand in the way of his bright future. A ghost from the past and the sinister shadow of Nickle who will stop at nothing to protect his own dark secrets....
I remember watching The Gambling Man when it was first on ITV back in 1995, it was one of the very first programmes I ever saw Robson Green star in. Although I never majorly followed the series of TV adaptations of Catherine Cookson's novels when they were first on ITV, I actually had fond memories of watching The Gambling Man as this particular story was less romantic than the other stories adapted for TV, and it was probably the only Catherine Cookson story I remember watching at all. Highly recommended.
