In Gone To The Dogs, Alison Steadman, Warren Clarke, Jim Broadbent, Sheila Hancock, Martin Clunes and in his TV drama debut Harry Enfield, star in this six-part comedy drama set in the lucrative world of greyhound racing.
Self-made millionaire Larry Patterson is powerful and charismatic, with the best dogs in the greyhound racing world. Jim Morley is one of life's losers, always 'just one business away' from making his fortune; his only link to the world of greyhound racing is a three-legged dog called Highland Fling. On the financial scale, they're as far removed as it s possible to be. But they have one thing in common: they both love the same woman...
Gone To Seed re-unites the principal cast in entirely new roles: Alison Steadman, Jim Broadbent and Warren Clarke are Hilda, Monty and Winston Plant - triplets who are anything but identical with Sheila Hancock as domineering matriarch Mag; comedy legend Peter Cook stars as Mag's old flame, conman Welsey Willis. Anthony Newley, Ron Davies and Stephen Marcus guest-star.
The Plant family has run a garden centre in Rotherhithe since Dickens' time, surviving both war and redevelopment. But now, family rivalry threatens to poison their unlikely paradise. The frumpy Hilda has only one passion in life: Milwall FC. Country and Western singer Monty dreams of turning the run-down nursery into a floral oasis in the heart of Docklands and jobless builder and part-time wrestler Winston doesn't know a begonia from a buttercup!
