The Grand: The Complete Series (DVD)
An early success for acclaimed screenwriter Russell T. Davies, this peak-time drama series explores the 'upstairs-downstairs' lives of the management, staff and guests of a luxury Manchester hotel in the 1920s. Starring Susan Hampshire, Tim Healy and Mark McGann, The Grand's compelling storylines often encompass the darker side of inter-war life as poverty and exploitation, covert prostitution and unenlightened attitudes loom large, life is not all it seems behind the hotel's elegant facade...New Year's Eve, 1918. Owners John and Sarah Bannerman celebrate the re-opening of their refurbished hotel and the return of demobbed son Stephen. But their joy is marred by a crisis that could lose them the hotel and one that can only be resolved with the financial muscle of John's brother, Marcus. Amoral and ruthless to the point of sadism, with a barely concealed interest in Sarah, Marcus now holds a key stake in the business, making sibling rivalry and conflict inevitable.This complete set contains all eighteen episodes from both series.
