Show Summary

In this English series from the 1990s, Stephen Crane (played by Clive Owen) is the Chancer, a young London business analyst, con-man and outsider who is called in to save Douglas Motors, a crumbling firm owned by the stylish Douglas family which makes sports cars. At the beginning of the series, Crane works for Kleber's Bank and he has a bold plan to get new investors. However, a shady past under another name is fast catching up with him.

      This series revolves around the young businessman/conman

      Stephan Crane.,a.k.a Derek Love,played by an early career

      Clive Owen. The young man is bursting with talent as becomes apparent to those who come into contact with him,

      including the meglomaniac financier Robert Franklin,played

      delightfully by british veteran actor Peter Vaugahn. (SP?) Clive Owen is a must see in this, his breakout role which

      led to U.S. film stardom. I encourage anyone who has access to a copy of the shows 2 dvds ( 2 seasons), possibly through

      your local library,to delve into Cranes world for a few hours- you won't be disappointed. As Stephan might say "Cranes Law - Rule number one- He who won't get off the fence will end up with splinters in his bum".moreless
    • Chancer blew past my expectations.

      9.0
      Chancer blew past my expectations. At first, I had expected same old same old plot development but twist after turn of excitement and action just way exceeded my expectations. Mind you, there were some problems (most discontinuity issues) that I don't have the time to mention but all in all, a solid 9.
