British drama at its best!!!!, 23 May 2003
Barbara Dickson, Samantha Morton, Geraldine James, Ruth Gemmel and Cathy Tyson head a distinguished cast in 'Band of Gold', a bold and compulsive drama. This gritty drama revolves around the murder of a single mother forced into prositution by her mounting debts. She soon finds herself drawn into the sisterhood of the streets, a fiercely loyal network which underpins the harsh realities of the oldest profession in the world. This is british drama at its very best!!! It is nail biting, gripping and both harrowing and heartwarming at the same time - the writing is 'gold'right enough! Some of the best British performances of all time are contained within this series and gives a medium for a strong and inspiring cast which boasts the creme de la creme of female actors. The videos come in a double cassette box and the series lasts approximately four hours. It's just a pity that the second series has been deleted and is not available to buy.
