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. The series continues on ITV tonight at 9pm.
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.
To celebrate its release, we have one complete DVD set to giveaway.
