Synopsis

Providing the perfect blend of cold-bloodied thrills and wicked humour, it breathes new life into the crime genre. Taking the best elements of The Sopranos and giving them a very British twist, DOWN TERRACE focuses on the kind of issues faced by all families. Such as who grassed up son Karl (Robin Hill) to the local police? How will dad Bill (Robert Hill) explain the recent profit drop to his bosses in London? Can Uncle Eric () dispose of a body without making a mess of it again? And what should mum Maggie (Spaced's Julia Deakin) make for tea? When Bill suspects there's a mole in his criminal operation, he decides it's time to clean house and recrimination, betrayal, murder and a spot of redecorating are quick to follow. But as Bill and his family soon discover, you're only as good as the people you know…
