About the show
Monday nights after ONE News Tonight
An exciting and uncompromising four-part adaptation of the best-selling crime thriller by Martina Cole, The Take stars Tom Hardy (RocknRolla) as Freddie Jackson, and Brian Cox (The Escapist) as Ozzy.
Freddie is a free man after spending a considerable stretch at Her Majesty's Pleasure, and now he plans to take the underworld by storm.
As events unfold, his wife Jackie (Kierston Wareing - Leaving) becomes increasingly unstable, not helped by the actions of her younger sister, Maggie (Charlotte Riley - Easy Virtue), who is in love with Freddie's cousin, Jimmy (Shaun Evans - Boy A).
If you are a Jackson then you trust no one, because everyone in this criminal world is on The Take.
