After an eight-year stint for a failed bank heist, Frank Ross (Tom Bell, Prime Suspect) returns to his old gangland haunts to find the snitch who sent him to jail. The smooth, streetwise ex-con quickly adjusts to the new attitudes of the disco-tinged '70s but discovers that although neighborhoods change, old grudges never go out of style. Played with steely intelligence by Bell, Ross doesn't hesitate to pull a gun or swing a fist if it suits him. Can he find the rat without falling into the clutches of a ruthless crime boss (Brian Cox, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) or the detective (Norman Rodway, The Bretts) determined to destroy him? Filmed on location in South London, Out depicts a world where gritty pubs, dingy flats, and run-down office buildings teem with high-living mobsters, cash-starved hustlers, and corrupt cops. BAFTA nominee Bell delivers a psychologically complex portrait of a gangster whose inner demons torment him as ferociously as his flesh-and-blood enemies.
The best ever TV series on British screens, bar none!
'OUT' is out on DVD (finally) and by public demand. The greatest ever TV series and staring the world class Tom Bell. The story is a simple revenge tale, concerning a bank robber (Frank) who emerges shell-shocked, after a six year term in jail. His mission is to find the grass who sent him and his gang away. Packed full of 'Sweeney' (hard man) type action and the most quotable lines; this one became an instant cult sensation. "Frank Ross is out!" and the rest, well is a glorious history.
