The Street - series catch up

BBC iPlayer - The Street: Series 3: Episode 1
For a limited time. UK only

Brilliant tragedy from Jimmy McGovern. A perfect example of the two-edged ending (as per Slumdog etc.) This series is pure class. Episode one has a superb cast led by Bob Hoskins, Liam Cunningham, Francis Barber and Timothy Spall. Directed by David Blair who also directed The Key and other great series for BBC Scotland. It's already up to episode 5 and so far I've only seen this and the one about the squadie returning from Iraq disfigured, both on iPlayer. Not sure how long these will stay online.
