Based on Iwan (Iwcs) Roberts’ first novel ‘Dal y Mellt’, Rough Cut is a 6-part drama series, set in contemporary Wales, which takes us on a roller-coaster journey from Cardiff to Holyhead, from London to Dublin and to the farm of Bwlch y Gloch in old Caernarfonshire.
Bad luck follows our hero CARBO (26) like a bad penny and being apprehended by the likes of MICI FINN and LES MOORE doesn’t help. GRONW, the old farmer, has asked them to find Carbo, not just because he’s an excellent mechanic, he’s also a first-class lock picker.
Life is about to test Carbo in ways he could never have imagined. And we follow Carbo’s trials and tribulations as he weaves his way in and out of the lives of the other characters, hell-bent on his own survival as he finds himself an unwitting part of a huge diamond heist.
"Revels in the scale and variety of the Welsh landscape, as much as it has fun with an amusing script."
“This Welsh crime thriller is a rough diamond.”
“A Welsh Ocean’s Eleven.”
