Clive Owen rollicks back into action in the second season of Chancer, the densely plotted British TV hit that shaped Owen before his rocket to stardom in American films like Croupier and Closer. Owen's character, Derek "Dex" Love, has shed his alias, Stephen Crane, and dives into his new capers with relish. Freshly out of prison, Dex has his eye on his latest scams and swindles, while grieving the death of his true love, Jo, played by the splendid English actress Susannah Harker, who happily makes regular appearances in this series in the form of flashbacks and ghostly conversations. Dex forms unlikely alliances as he takes on the evil industrialist Tom Franklyn (Peter Vaughan), who just happens to be Jo's dad. Though Dex is not exactly the most admirable protagonist, it's hard not to root for him. His determination to overcome his dodgy upbringing can be surprisingly moving: "Being born with a plastic spoon in your mouth can leave an impression," he tells a confidant. And Chancer is no lightweight trash TV, but rather, completely involving--and rewarding. --A.T. Hurley

Product Description

"Compelling drama series" —Los Angeles Times

He's devious, dangerous—and even more determined.

He's back! In the complete second series of this British TV hit, Clive Owen turns on his megawatt charm as an irresistible rogue with a taste for scams, swindles, and romance.

Released from prison, Derek "Dex" Love sloughs off his identity as Stephen Crane and goes to work for his former romantic rival, Piers Garfield-Ward (Simon Shepherd). The two men have only one interest in common—Joseph, the orphaned baby of the woman whom they both loved. Together, they try to save Piers’s family estate and keep Joseph from the sole custody of his grandfather, the megalomaniacal industrialist Tom Franklyn (Peter Vaughan). Along the way, Dex concocts all manner of frauds and forgeries while falling for Anna (Louise Lombard, the House of Eliott, CSI), a woman on the run from her own dodgy past.

In a plot packed with double crosses of the heart and the wallet, Chancer propels powerfully toward its surprising, devastating conclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second in Series Even Better March 11, 2008
Verified Purchase
The second year in the Chancer series is even better than the first year.
It is disappointing in that it has only has four episodes. The characters are brilliantly played. Clive Owen just keeps getting better with each performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clive is my dude! March 20, 2008
Verified Purchase
Chancer is a wonderful series made before Clive Owen was discovered by American audiences. The character he plays here is amoral, dishonest, and greedy. In short, a really compelling character in a great series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chancer 1 & 2 Clive Owens January 20, 2013
Verified Purchase
Hi I also found Chancer a very good series, to me it was like a series of cat and mouse, with a very excellent story line. I love Clive Owens and as far as I am concern he has never let me down with his movies, or Tv Series.
Wish there could be a series 3
Chancer has many great actors which also makes this series a must to watch. I hope other also get the pleasure of sitting back and relaxing on a cold day and being entertained by the best. Thank you Amazon another hit for me.
