Crocodile Shoes

Preview by Jack Foley

CROCODILE Shoes is the hit TV series which follows the life of a Newcastle born factory worker who attempts to make his dreams come true as a country singer.

Starring and written by Jimmy Nail (Auf Wiedersehen, Pet) who plays Jed Shepperd, Crocodile Shoes was first screened on BBC One in 1994 and comes to DVD for the first time ever as a four-disc set on September 2, 2013 courtesy of Acorn Media.

With the prospect of redundancy looming, Jed makes a lifetime decision to quit his job and pursue his dream career as a country singer. From Newcastle to Nashville and back again, this is a story of fame and fortune; adventures, opportunities, conflicts, heartaches, the rise, the fall.

Alongside Nail, the cast includes James Wilby (Gosford Park), Melanie Hill (Waterloo Road), Amy Madigan (Field of Dreams), Burt Young (Rocky) and Alex Kingston (Doctor Who).

Crocodile Shoes features a critically acclaimed chart-topping soundtrack that launched the real-life music career of Nail including five songs by Paddy McAloon of Prefab Sprout.

Crocodile Shoes is the original, unmissable musical drama.
