Product Description

Product Description

A new six-part drama for BBC One, written by Sally Wainwright and starring Sarah Lancashire as police sergeant Catherine Cawood. Catherine Cawood (Sarah Lancashire) is the sergeant on duty when flustered and nervous accountant Kevin Weatherill (Steve Pemberton) comes into her West Yorkshire police station to report a crime.

He's reticent about the details and Kevin loses his nerve. The crime he was trying to report was Kevin's own brain-child, a plot to kidnap his boss's daughter and keep enough of the ransom to put his kids through private school. And now local drug king-pin Ashley Cowgill (Joe Armstrong) has put the plan into action, and Kevin's fantasy has become a grim and dangerous reality.

The botched kidnapping of Ann Gallagher (Charlie Murphy) and its fallout unfolds... Catherine is used to picking up the pieces of everyone else's lives, but the hunt for Ann Gallagher will get right under her skin. Catherine becomes convinced that only by finding Ann alive and bringing her captors to justice can she avenge the death of her daughter.

Format: DVD
Catherine Cawood, a tough but honest and decent sergeant striving to do her job in a rundown Yorkshire valley community, is consumed with anxiety over the release from jail of Tommy Lee Royce, the disturbed and violent young thug indirectly responsible for the death of her teenage daughter, by whom he fathered the grandson Catherine feels morally obliged to bring up, even at the cost of her own marriage. "What else could she do?" When Tommy becomes involved once again in serious local crime, her obsession with getting him back behind bars and out of her small grandson's life goes beyond the call of duty.

With its tongue-in-cheek title, since this must surely be one of the saddest former industrial valleys in Britain apart from the lovely scenery, the police thriller succeeds on all counts. It is compulsive viewing, filled with tense edge-of-the-seat moments, yet unlike many similar dramas is highly plausible, with no nagging holes in the plot twists. The quality of the acting is superb across the board, with a sharp script, many touches of humour to ease the frequent grimness of the theme and little need for subtitles.

It succeeds on several levels, not only as admittedly often bleak and bloody entertainment, but also in developing in depth all the characters as believable people, with their strengths and failings, and their complex relationships. The author even manages to evoke a little sympathy for most of the villains, including Royce, with some appreciation of the dysfunctional families and injustices which have moulded them. As the wealthy industrialist whose daughter is kidnapped observes at one point with unintentional irony, "all actions have consequences".

This truly has been one of the most gripping TV dramas I have watched in a very long time. I must admit I came across this series by accident whilst searching through BBC iPlayer for something else, however having spotted Sarah Lancashire of whom I have always been a bit of a fan, I thought I'll give it a try. The series was already 3 episodes in by the time I discovered it therefore I had the chance to catch up, by the end of the first episode I was hooked and had no choice but to continue devouring the series. I will admit I'm not really a huge viewer of television especially crime dramas as they often tend to be extremely cliched however Happy Valley totally caught me off guard. The writing and story was absolutely fantastic, gripping from the get go and however dark the story matter I often found a slight comedic element to Catherine's character caravans excellent portrayal by Sarah Lancashire. As the series progresses you can't help but be dragged in to Catherine's fight and without wanting to give too much away if it wasn't already personal for her in the very beginning of the series by the third episode Catherine's fight becomes even more so. The acting all round is superb Sarah Lancashire is as I have already mentioned absolutely fantastic, the variety she brings to every character she plays surely can be compared only to some of the very best actresses in the business, she surely deserves much more recognition. Steve Pemberton is also in a strange way a delight to watch, Sibohan Finneran portrayed an excellent supporting character. Overall a sheer delight to watch although brutal at times but gripping British drama as it should be.

This is by far the best drama I have EVER seen! If Sarah Lancashire doesn't get a best actress award for this there is something wrong with the world!
The characters are so believable and the plot is so gripping it has you sitting on the edge of you're seat shouting "NO!" At the screen!
The content is horrific and shocking at times but it leaves you wanting more. PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE make this into a series! I cannot wait to own this on DVD.

What can I say about this incredible series which hasn't already been said? It is beautifully written, superbly acted and a prefect combination of tense thriller and heartfelt emotional drama. Sarah Lancashire gives one of the greatest performances I have ever seen- the BAFTA must be hers next year.

I urge you to buy this series- you'll want to splurge out and watch it all in one go. I envy you for discovering this for the first time.

Like the other reviewers, I can't wait for the next episode. Edge of my seat throughout and totally caught up in the drama. I agree that this should lead into another series. Brilliant acting by all the actors and deserving of several awards.

Sarah Lancashire is just an absolute diamond. She is one of our finest actresses. I am wishing my life away, having watched episode 4 last night, can't wait until next Thursday. The acting is brilliant without any dramatic histrionics, and just the right amount of humour. The line about animal husbandry was brilliant. James Norton is excellent as the vile Tommy as he just doesn't look like your typical lowlife, looks are so deceiving. Sally Wainwright's writing skills just keeps you caught up in the drama and wanting more. Brilliant. Roll on next Tuesday.
