£7.49 at Amazon and then £10.85 at Zavvi - so seems a good buy

Available in blu-ray for the very first time! Screenwriter Neil Biswas' (Bradford Riots) adaptation of Martina Cole's novel The Take, spans 10 years of British socio-political change. The backdrop of the Thatcher era and its transition into the birth of New Labour, is particularly relevant to the drama's theme of idealised new beginnings; stemming from and resulting in a sense of disillusion.

Freddie Jackson (Tom Hardy, Bronson, RockNRolla) leaves prison in 1984, after serving 4 years for bank robbery. His loyal, if unstable, wife Jackie (Kierston Wareing, Rise of the Footsoldier) has waited for him on the outside, under the misguided impression that he wants to go straight. Freddie, however, is raring to get back into the game, keen on becoming king of the East End underworld. Cousin Jimmy (Shaun Evans, Boy A) is hot on his heels and, with time, rises the ranks of the quickly expanding crime empire - eventually eclipsing Freddie himself. He also has something else Freddie covets, Jackie's younger sister Maggie (Charlotte Riley, Wuthering Heights), and together they have a loving relationship the Jacksons can only dream of. Bitterness and jealously threaten to tear the family apart, as loyalties are brought into question, trusts are betrayed, and violence ensues. In an era of new promises and possibilities, everyone it appears, is on the take.

Great show, hot!

Sky are showing a new martina cole series soon, hope it's as good as this
Fab! Thank you
TV miniseries rather than film - but helped redefine Sky1 as purveyors of high-quality UK drama.
'Ello Maggie!!
This was brilliant, Tom Hardy's performance is exceelent too. Great price.
