UK: Blackpool Starring David Tennant Available To Stream On Amazon Prime


The 2004 BBC series Blackpool starring David Tennant, Sarah Parish and David Morrissey is now available to stream in the UK on Amazon Prime. The entire series is available for £9.99. Watch it here.

This unusual six part musical drama was first shown in the UK at the end of 2004 on BBC One.
The plot centres around the murder of a young man in a Blackpool arcade, and how it affects the people involved in the arcade and the investigation.
Ripley Holden (David Morrissey) is the ambitious, bullying arcade owner who believes strongly in luck, and who is planning to turn his arcade into a Las Vegas-style casino hotel and thus revive Blackpool's fortunes. DI Peter Carlisle (David Tennant), the investigating officer of the murder, is a charming and good-natured although extremely manipulative police officer, who dislikes Holden almost on sight. He takes a shine to Natalie Holden (Sarah Parish), Ripley's shy, frustrated and lonely wife, whom Ripley takes for granted.
As the investigation proceeds, it takes its toll on the characters; Ripley, under suspicion of murder, finds his public and private life slowly unravelling as both his bullying nature and long-forgotten demons from his past return to bite him, whilst Carlisle, intent on proving Ripley is the murderer and planning to use Natalie to get to him, finds himself genuinely falling in love with her instead.
