Family (ITV 2003, Martin Kemp, Jamie Forman)



Martin Kemp, Jamie Foreman and David Calder star in Family, a series set against the background of the London underworld. The Cutlers are ruthless but revered, and are fiercely loyal to one another. They are passionate, affectionate and emotional, but they’ll use any means they can to get what they want – within the law or otherwise.

Ted Cutler (David Calder) is one of Britain’s most notorious villains – aka ‘The Guv’nor’. He runs the Cutler firm. The legitimate business is gaming machines. The real business is crime.

He has two sons, Joey (Martin Kemp) and Dave (Jamie Foreman), and also a daughter, Jacqueline (Simone Lahbib) known affectionately as Jacks. Joey is married to Sophie and they have two daughters; Jacks lives alone – for some reason she finds it difficult to find a man. Dave is married and has a boy to carry the Cutler name forward, but Dave’s somewhere in America, on the run.

Ted also has a girlfriend that he’d like to be able to call his wife, but since his wife won’t give him a divorce, he can’t.


Things have changed a lot since Ted’s day – the old-time ‘gentleman villain’ doesn’t really exist any longer. But convincing Ted of that isn’t easy. He’s still the guv’nor, but most of the firm’s work is done by Joey. Ted has all the power but none of the responsibility.

And then Dave comes home again…
