Catch this fox, if you can
18 March 2003 | by buckaroobanzai50See all my reviews

I remember this series quite well. It was essentially a British TV version of the first Godfather film, but followed the lives of a small time East End gangster family in England, headed by the patriarch Billy Fox. While some of the Fox siblings have no quarms about joining the criminal fraternity, others reject it without hesitation. Much like Coppola's movie, we also see the family member's relationships with each other, and the outsiders who threaten it's existence. Unfortunately, the Fox family are about to experience an unexpected and terrible loss.

Certainly worth viewing on VHS or any satellite channel near you.
