Holding On: The Complete Series

After a brutal murder a group of Londoners struggle for survival in the BAFTA and RTS award-winning BBC crime drama, Holding On (1997), starring David Morrissey (The Walking Dead) and Phil Daniels (Quadrophenia).

Holding On: The Complete Series comes to DVD on November 9, 2015 courtesy of Simply Media.

After a beautiful young woman is found brutally murdered, a diverse group of Londoners, connected to her in some way, are all forced to confront the way they live their lives. While some make the choice to fight injustice, others begin to sink even further into despair and degradation.

Just as relevant now as it was in the ’90s, Holding On is a compelling, gritty portrait of London in the early 1990s, and follows the interconnected lives of several characters under the strain of drugs, corruption and racism.

Starkly contemporary, fast-paced, unsentimental, and often funny, this eight-part multi-layered series from 1997 is written by Tony Marchant (Garrow’s Law) and also stars Ace Bhatti (Bend It Like Beckham), Ellen Thomas (Mount Pleasant) and Diane Parish (Lovejoy) – all known for their roles in Eastenders – alongside Saira Todd (Queer as Folk) and Lesley Manville (Mayday).

London will chew you up and spit you out – if you give it a chance.
