Girlfriends (Phyllis Logan/Zoe Wanamaker) - Preview

Girlfriends

Preview by Jack Foley

WITH a brilliantly fresh take on female friendship Kay Mellor’s highly acclaimed new drama Girlfriends brings together three of Britain’s great acting talents: Phyllis Logan, Miranda Richardson and Zoë Wanamaker. Following its run on ITV, this powerful series is set for DVD release courtesy of Acorn Media International.

This thoroughly engaging and entertaining drama follows the lives of three very different women facing the many obstacles that life has thrown at them; from bereavement, divorce and family problems, to age discrimination and health issues, but the one thing that holds them together is their strong bond.

The years have flown by for life-long friends Linda, Sue and Gail, yet their lives seem more complicated than ever. When Linda’s (Logan, The Good Karma Hospital, Downton Abbey), husband Micky vanishes from a cruise ship on their wedding anniversary, she suddenly finds herself on her own for the first time in nearly 30 years.

Widowed and out of her depth she turns to her old friends Gail (Wanamaker, Mr Selfridge, My Family) and Sue (Richardson, Mapp & Lucia, And Then There Were None), for support, but they all have their own problems to face.

As our girlfriends come back together to support their grieving friend, it’s clear Linda, Gail and Sue’s lives have changed over the years, but true friendship remains the same no matter how much time has passed.

With a fantastic support cast including Anthony Head (A Street Cat Named Bob, You, Me & Them), Daisy Head (Guilt, The Syndicate 3), Chris Fountain (Coronation Street, Hollyoaks), Philip Cumbus (The Resistable Rise of Arturo Ui, Comus), Matthew Lewis (Harry Potter, Ripper Street), Adrian Rawlins (Hard Sun, Maigret in Montmartre), Wendy Craig (The Worst Witch, Unforgotten) and Dave Hill (Porridge, Vera), this six-part series arrives as a two-disc DVD set on February 26, 2018.
