A real cracker! This six-part crime drama was Lynda la Plante's first TV script, written with the encouragement of Euston Films producer Linda Agran. The cast was comprised of unknowns, but all gave excellent, gritty performances, chief among them Ann Mitchell who starred as Dolly Rawlins, plus Maureen O'Farrell, Fiona Hendley and Eve Mottley. Four widows revive their late husbands' plan to rob a security van in a London underpass, after the men were killed in the first attempt. It's just brilliant.
