Grafters Classic TV Show
ROBSON GREEN and STEPHEN TOMKINSON star as brothers in this comedy-drama series.They are both builders, but while Trevor has a wife and son, Joe is footloose and fancy free and always in trouble with the women.They both have big ambitions but all too often complications undermine their grand plans.
Grafters Fan Tributes8 Jackie Hornsby from England, now Texas, USA: I bought the DVD's because I think Robson Green is a wonderful actor and I knew the series would be great. We were not disappointed. All the actors did a fantastic job. We enjoyed every moment of both seasons. Well done.
7 Ed Reed from Hope BC Canada: Really enjoyed the Mini-series on DVD. Always thought what happened to Robson Green and Stephen Tomkinson. What are they doing now?
6 Debbie from Daytona Bch., Fl.: American TV is so horrible. I constantly search British TV for quality. The second season when they had Viv's exhusbands house painted inside. I could not quit laughing. Here in American we deal constantly with crap.
5 Jerri from Little Rock, USA: Watched this summer from Netflix. Loved it. The story was funny and touching about these two brothers struggling to make a life. Can't believe there wasn't a third series. The actors were so good. It's what I expect of British comedies. It's hard to pick a favorite moment but I guess it is in the second series when Trevor is visited in jail by wife and told that she is moving to Canada and taking his baby son. When Trevor cried, I cried.
4 Randy from Canada: I absolutely adore Emily Joyce. She is a wonderful actress and I hope her career is long and successful.
Grafters was a show that I didnt want to miss each week because of the strong cast and great story lines. Great job guys!!!!
3 Anne from Belgium: Robson and Stephen are just a perfect 'pair' of raskalls - and great actors! I loved the series very much. The stories, the humour, the characters were just right!
2 Alain from Amsterdam, the Netherlands: Ilove this series. Unfortunately I have only started seeing this series, starting from episode 4 or so in Series II. It was broadcasted by a dutch TV channel and it is a shame that they have not done so with series I. Hopefully they will broadcast that one too, because the mix between drama, interfamiliar communication and the particular english humour is just great, loved it and hopefully once there will be a series III.
1 Suzi from Cramlington, just outside Dudley, where Robo was born: I absoloutly love Grafters, its amazing, i watched it the 1st time round and was so pleased when u started playing it again, thank u!!! I think the programme and actors r all perfect 4 the roles, especially Joe and Simon, they play excellent parts. I love Robson Green, I have done since he was in Soldier Soldier, I think he is amazing, and he is from the North East. Play more Grafters!!!!
