Watch The Syndicate on UK BBC TV
BBC Television Provide UK Web Users with Free Coverage of the Syndicate on BBC iPlayer.
Following on from the success of the first series, which saw the syndicate of five supermarket workers bagging a big win on the lottery, this second series focuses on a group of hospital workers who have the good fortune of a similar big win.
In the same vein as the first series, The Syndicate goes to show that money doesn’t always bring happiness.
No matter how much cash you have in the bank, life’s ups and downs still provide drama, and that’s the story of these colourful individuals keeps viewers on the edge of their seats.
Written by Kay Mellor of Band of Gold fame, the series is just the ticket for fun and games.
In just the first few moments of the opening episode, viewers are left wondering whether the lottery win will actually happen, as silly single mum Dopey Becky sends the cast scrabbling around for the misplaced winning ticket.
The cast include heart-of-gold Mandy, played by Siobhan Finneran, also seen in Downton Abbey. Despite living with an abusive oaf of a husband, she still manages to keep a smile on her face.
Dopey Becky is her daughter, played by Natalie Gavin, alongside hopeless hospital porter Alan (Mark Addy). Joining them in The Syndicate are wannabe father Tom (Jimi Mistry) and gobby nurse Rose (Alison Steadman).
Mellor throws in a touch of added drama this time in the shape of Helen (Sally Rogers), the original founder of the syndicate, who apparently dreamed up the numbers many years ago but since left the group.
The big question is if your numbers came up, would share some of your winnings with her?
