Created by BAFTA Award winning television screenwriter Jimmy McGovern (Cracker, Accused), The Street is an outstanding drama series about life behind the front doors of everyday working-class families on a street in Manchester, northern England. The inhabitants of The Street do their best to be good people as they struggle with moral choices in hard-hitting, individual stories of poverty, addiction, sexuality, unemployment and crime. With the brilliant acting talents of Jim Broadbent, Jane Horrocks, Timothy Spall, Bob Hoskins, David Thewlis, Matt Smith, Anna Friel and many others, each riveting episode captures perfectly the moving reality of ordinary human lives.

Customer Reviews

Superb writing, acting, directing.

The trials and tribulations of ordinary life in a British city are portrayed very well.
Amazon Customer
In fact, I never finished watching the DVD because I just couldn't get into them.

During the first episode the viewer becomes involved with the characters and the ways that lives can change in an instant. Following episodes are then engrossing because they look at the life of the street from a different person's perspective in each episode.
The structure of the series and the realistic scripts makes The Street's characters engrossing, funny, desperate and pathetic. The trials and tribulations of ordinary life in a British city are portrayed very well.

This masterful series rivals the most intricate novels for deft writing and vivid narrative, using the medium of film in a remarkable way. The BAFTA Award winning collection was created by writer Jimmy McGovern (Cracker, The Lakes). From a seemingly seamy beginning, complex, inter-woven stories build deep explorations of life-issues. Set in Manchester, in northern England, this gritty series may start with a shag and suitcase of sweets, but things quickly progress to serious stuff. The Brits have knack for writing sharp observations of flawed human characters. The slew of actors involved, from Neil Dudgeon, Jim Broadbent, Lee Ingleby, Jane Horrocks, Gina McKee, Liz White, David Bradley, Ruth McCabe, Christine Bottomely, Joanne Froggatt, Timothy Spall, Mark Benton, David Thewlis, Matt Smith, Grace Cassidy, Dean Andrews, and Marshall Lancaster, etc., are some of the best of the best; the U.K. boasts numerous fine, often underrated, actors. Not only are Garibaldi Biscuits in the offing, many of the actors from the superb Life On Mars (U.K.) are featured, also set in Manchester.

Great stories peer intimately at a life, its particularities and interconnectedness to other lives; each character's uniqueness touches larger, more universal narratives. "The Street" becomes not just a street in Manchester, but a place we all inhabit.

This is by far one of the finest drama series from across the pond. Every story is a complete dramatic tale featuring different residents of THE STREET in each episode. There's plenty for everyone. It's impossible to select one single series over any of the other two , so just buy the complete set of all three series and enjoy this superbly written and acted show

I loved this series, the British do a great job on personality types. There should be more programs like this, that make you think of who you would be in different situations and the repercussions of our actions.

The stories are all stand alone but you see continuing characters. The stories brought a lot of different emotions. They had different themes and you never knew what to expect. I would definitely recommend!

This is a very good series, but it likes to shock you with open sex, violence, etc. Otherwise it is well done. Acting is first rate. Stories are poignant and thoughtful.
