This was a fantastic series, which featured some original girl power. Dolly Rawlings served as a sort of matriach, keeping the other girls in check, while they organised themselves in order to carry out the robbery which her dead husband had planned to commit. Lynda La Plante created this series, because she grew tired of the glut of decent roles for women on TV, she was also laughably fed up of playing beaten up 'tarts' (her words) in shows like the 'Sweeney'. Great acting by all concerned, and La Plante's writing had me hooked until the suprise climax. The second series was certainly a must see too.
Own it on DVD or video.
