Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Unexpectedly sprung from prison before his sentence was up, former getaway driver Len Green (Pete Postlethwaite) was determined to leave his life of crime behind by accepting a position with the undertaking firm run by his Uncle Irwin (Frank Finlay). Alas, in each subsequent 50-minute episode of the British miniseries The Sins, Len's resolve is sorely tested by a variety of temptations, all of them linked to the Seven Deadly Sins of old. Making matters worse, Len was being nagged to return to his old gang, while his Gloria (Geraldine James), unaccustomed to living in poverty, had herself turned to thievery to make ends meet. The seven-episode The Sins was originally telecast by BBC1 beginning October 24, 2000.
