Fox is writer Trevor Preston's magnum opus about a South London family who have lived in the Clapham area for generations. A microcosm of London and the way it has changed, the series follows the ups and downs and conflicts within the family. The patriach who rules his family with a mixture of benevolence and depotism, "King" Billy is a retired Covent Garden porter and his family consists of his second wife, Connie and five sons: Vin, Ray, Joey, Kenny and Phil. Written and directed on a scale which is seldom attempted on television nowadays, each of the thirteen episodes brings a depth and richness to both the characters and situation - from Billy's 70th birthday to Kenny's horror at accidentally killing his boxing opponent, from Vin trying to cope with a deaf son to Ray's brushes with the law. The script, direction and acting are pitch-perfect and this is arguably the best, most involving series that Euston Films produced throughout its twenty years.
