Tommy McDonagh, the head of a London crime family, is hiding a forbidden truth. He has been living a lie. One that could threaten everything he has worked for - maybe even his life. 

The story reaches a dramatic and bloody finale as family loyalty and childhood friendship is blown apart by those who held it closest to their hearts. 

Meet the McDonaghs! Meet the Clan London!

Tommy McDonagh  23 - cockney accent - head of the McDonagh crime family which he inherited from his father Paddy. Born and bred in the Ladbroke Grove area of West London, Tommy is the eldest of the clan. He was thrown out of school at the age of fifteen for selling drugs. He has been in and out of prison since then, once for the vicious torture of an associate who had his elbows, knees and ankles blown off for stealing from the family. He has been under heavy police surveillance for many years since his release and is attributed to over 20 murders in London alone. His preferred method of eliminating enemies of the clan are hits on high speed motor bikes. These hits are taken care of by younger brothers Sean and Pat and various associates from nearby black criminal gangs. He is renowned for his vicious temper and torture methods including the infamous hanging from Hammersmith Bridge of three members of a rival Turkish family.

Danny Walsh  23 - cockney accent - childhood friend of the McDonaghs and Tommy’s most trusted aid. He and Tommy began their adult criminal career by extorting money from the local street traders and bar owners in their native West London. The pair soon moved on to high profile bank robberies and purchased numerous London night clubs and bars from the takings. Danny is suspected of chopping off the hands of a rival drug dealer who stumbled into McDonagh territory. Danny, with his roguish good looks and charm, has always been popular with the ladies but is devoted to his childhood sweetheart Charlene Tavares Silva. They have one son together – Francis.

Sean McDonagh 21– cockney accent - the second eldest of the family. He has always struggled to deal with his brother Tommy’s close friendship and alliance with Danny Walsh. In Sean’s opinion no one should come above family. Sean and Danny have never got along since Danny stumbled across an incident between a young Sean McDonagh and their parish priest. Danny viewed Sean as a faggot but never told a soul about what happened. They both lost their innocence that day. Sean grew up to be a heroin addict and an alcoholic. He collects debts for his brother Tommy and is thought to have pulled the trigger for most of the hits ordered by his brother. Sean is believed to represent the McDonagh empire in their dealings with South American drug cartels.

Pat McDonagh  19- cockney accent - is the youngest of the family. Once a talented boxer, he put aside a glittering career to take care of family matters. He soon followed his volatile brother Sean into a world of heavy drink and drug addiction. They both collect debts for older brother Tommy and the mere mention of their names is enough to put fear into the most hardened of criminals. Pat McDonagh is suspected to be the brains behind over a dozen kidnappings with all of the victims being brutally tortured. He has never been charged with any of these crimes. No one dared to testify.


Sinead McDonagh 20 - cockney accent - is the third eldest and desperately tries to hold the family together. Since the death of their mother she has watched helplessly as her father became wheelchair ridden and an alcoholic. Her brother Sean and Patrick have descended into a life of crime and drug and alcohol abuse. Eldest brother Tommy ignores her constant pleas to let them go from his empire. She has a daughter Hayley. Her abusive husband left them both after she held a knife to his throat. Sinead is a tough woman who takes no shit from anyone but has grown to resent her brother’s ways.


Paddy McDonagh 45 - Dublin accent - is the tough, hard drinking father of the family. He was once a bare knuckle champion fighter and leader of a notorious gang of London bank robbers. Along with close friend Johnny Doyle they became Britain’s most wanted men. Johnny left town without a trace but Paddy served eight years for one of their numerous robberies. He arrived in London an orphan at the age of fifteen with a deep rooted vendetta within his soul. Paddy always swore revenge on the man that murdered his father and almost crippled him for life. Revenge is a dish best eaten cold.


Martin Doherty 30 - Belfast accent - is the McDonagh’s alleged link to Irish paramilitaries. He was born and brought up in war torn Belfast and it is thought that he and the McDonaghs have worked together in some capacity to bring guns into the North of Ireland from the US. This has not been proved and both parties have denied any contact with each other. Doherty frequently moves between Belfast, London and the US. He once served six years in an Irish prison for possession of explosives. Sources close to the McDonagh clan describe Doherty as a father figure who keeps certain younger members of the outfit in check.
