The Trials of Jimmy Rose

The Trials of Jimmy Rose

Series 1 - Episode 2



Everything goes wrong very quickly for supposedly reformed armed robber/generic tough guy Jimmy Rose (Ray Winstone). Wading in to rescue his silly granddaughter from the clutches of a drug dealer didn’t work out well for Jimmy, who is flat out on a pavement, bruised.

But considering the pasting he was given, Jimmy is remarkably chipper and mobile as he roams around, breathing heavily like an angry moose trying to control its temper. “I need to get me ’aaands on 20 graaand a bit lively,” he tells an old mucker, as the Bad People start to close in. Meanwhile, his long-suffering wife (Amanda Redman) suffers just that little bit more.


Jimmy sees a local drug dealer meeting Tony, an old partner in crime whose violent actions led to an increase in his sentence. When he learns that Ellie and Aaron are in trouble because of his actions, Jimmy finds himself forced to consider working with Tony once again. Jackie has an encounter with the police and is forced to lie to them, leaving her convinced that her husband cannot change. Drama, starring Ray Winstone and Amanda Redman.
