XYY Man (The): The Complete Series
Network is delighted to announce the first ever UK DVD release of XYY MAN THE COMPLETE SERIES (12), a superior drama combining elements of the crime and spy genres. This four-disc set contains all thirteen episodes from the ITV series and will be available to buy on 12th February 2007. Freshly released from prison, reformed cat-burglar Spider Scott (Stephen Yardley - Howard's Way, Holby City) is determined to stay on the straight and narrow this time round. Unfortunately for Spider, his body is working against him - he has an abnormal genetic predisposition towards crimes against property and there are a number of factions willing to take advantage of his skills, including the British government. But carrying out sanctioned burglaries is more dangerous than the normal kind, as Spider soon finds out, and it's not long before he is being hotly pursued by Detective Sergeant Bulman (Don Henderson - Strangers, The Paradise Club).
• Crown Court: An Evil Influence parts 1, 2 and 3, featuring Stephen Yardley
A huge success when it was first shown on ITV in 1976/7, THE XYY MAN was a strong combination of both the crime and spy genres, with a compelling central performance by Stephen Yardley as cat-burglar Spider Scott. The XYY Man span off into the extraordinarily successful STRANGERS, also available from Network.
