THE Marshalls and the Dolans have history. For almost 40 years on the infamous Boxers Estate in Barking, East London, their relationship has rarely run smoothly.
Unaware of the background, teens Gary Marshall and Arnie Dolan forge a close bond, fighting adversity both on the streets and at home. But good things don't last forever and when a series of devastating events shatter their young live in Crossing The Whitewash, they are forced apart.
Eight years later, fuelled by rumour, Arnie goes looking for Gary with a score to settle - a mission which threatens fatal consequences for them both.
In the prequel Spark Out we revisit the history of the family feud through the eyes of Arnie's dad big Mo Dolan, a rising figure in the criminal underworld, his wife Beryl and Gary's parents Stan and Sheila. The story plays out in the early 80s against a backdrop of Thatcher's government and the Falklands War, an event which has life-changing consequences for everyone.
Finally in Dying Seconds, Gary and Arnie reluctantly form a truce in an effort to solve a murder which affects both of them badly. As their investigation develops they begin to question everything they thought they knew about those close to them.
Today I'm thrilled to announce that in September this year you will be able to buy the digital Box Set of the series and follow Gary and Arnie's story right up to the staggering conclusion.
Is this the end of the Boxer Boys? We'll have to wait and see...
