Fox is writer Trevor Preston's magnum opus about a South London family who have lived in the Clapham area for generation. A microcosm of London and the way it has changed, the series follows the ups and downs and conflicts within a family with a mixture of benevolence and despotism, "King" Billy (Peter Vaughan) is a retired Convent Garden porter, and his family consists of his second wife, Connie and five sons: Vin (Bernard Hill), Ray (Derek O'Connor), Joey (Larry Lamb), Kenny (Ray Winstone) and Phil (Eammon Boland).

Written and directed on a scale which is seldom attempted on television nowadays, each of the thirteen episodes brings a depth and richness to both the characters and situation - from Billy's 70th birthday to Kenny's' horror at accidentally killing his boxing opponent, from Vin trying to cope with a deaf son to Ray's brushes with the law. The script, direction and acting are pitch-perfect and this is arguably the best, most involving series that Euston Films produced throughout its twenty years.
