Right now, more than ever before, we are reliant on good TV. So many of us are at home, and wanting to immerse ourselves in new worlds, to fall in love with new characters. Well we’re very fortunate this week, for Gangs of London is now out on Sky, and it’s one of the best new series we’ve seen for a while.
To celebrate the show’s release, we had the pleasure of speaking to two of the leading roles, Joe Cole and Sope Dirisu (in real life, just before the lockdown commenced) – and more recently, we also spoke to the creator and director of five episodes, the visionary Gareth Evans, who was of course behind The Raid.
Watch both interviews below:
You can watch our video review of the show here:
For 20 years, Finn Wallace (Colm Meaney) was the most powerful criminal in London. Billions of pounds flowed through his organisation each year. But now he’s dead – and nobody knows who ordered the hit. With rivals everywhere, it’s up to the impulsive Sean Wallace (Joe Cole), with the help of the Dumani family headed by Ed Dumani (Lucian Msamati) to take his father’s place. if the situation wasn’t already dangerous enough, Sean’s assumption of power causes ripples in the world of international crime. Perhaps the one man who might be able to help him and be his ally is Elliot Finch (Sope Dirsu), who up until now, has been one of life’s losers, a lowlife chancer with a mysterious interest in the Wallace family. But as the wind of fate blows, Elliot finds himself transported to the inner workings of the largest criminal organisation in London.
Gangs Of London is now available on Sky.
