Modern British crime drama.
- Cold Call review by JG
This is a commentary on life today. The have-nots caring for the haves and the haves making money from the have-nots. It has much the feel of a TV soap about it, plenty of shouting between the characters. The lead role is a carer who sells her house and downsizes when her daughter gets married so that she can give her a good start. She gets a cold call which seems genuine but she ends up losing all her money. She goes to a self help group (like AA) and meets an acquaintance from the past who offers to help her. She is reluctant at first, because he was a bit of a shady character in the past. However it works out and he gets her to get a job as a carer for the man who stole her money whose mother has dementia. It gets quite involved and complicated before being finally resolved, not everyone getting quite what they wanted.
