Gold Digger : the shocking drama busting taboos about older women and sex. Their mother is a rich woman and Benjamin is a copywriter who, in all fairness to the boys, appears to do very little However, Gold Digger works beautifully as a soapy drama that promises to be full of twists and turns

Gold Digger, 9pm, BBC One ★★★

A tip of the hat to Julia Ormond for boldly going where many an actress might have chosen not to.

In this new six-parter by Marnie Dickens, she plays Julia Day, a mother of three who’s just divorced her husband and is turning 60. Dickens’s objective, we may surmise, was to drive away the fog of invisibility which can descend irrationally upon mature women, and demonstrate that age can indeed be just a number.

BBC One 's new family drama Gold Digger starring Julia Ormond and Ben Barnes begins on Tuesday 12th November at 9pm and on BBC iPlayer. Benjamin isn’t walking into some gloriously functioning happy family, and much of the hostility he encounters is as much to do with events that happened

Julia, ruefully examining her brand new Senior Citizen railcard, travelled to London from her home in Devon to celebrate her 60th with her family, but her plans hit the buffers.

Daughter Della got stranded at an airport, her morbid City lawyer son Patrick was too busy to make it, and his crass younger brother Leo, incapable of changing a lightbulb or buying a pint of milk, forgot all about it. It summed up Julia’s melancholy sense that she was being nudged into the sidings of life.

She assuaged her disappointment with a trip to the British Museum, where she once worked as a conservator, and was flabbergasted to find herself being chatted up by Benjamin (Ben Barnes), aged 30-ish.

So went Julia Ormond’s scene-setting monologue on Gold Digger ( BBC One ) – a psychosexual thriller about an age-gap romance with possible ulterior The BBC are hoping this six-parter, written by Marnie Dickens, will keep audiences glued to their sofas on autumnal nights and get tongues wagging

He seemed gentle and charming, though as his surprisingly confident seduction of Julia proceeded we were obviously being steered to believe that he gave the show its title. But it’s fatal to jump to conclusions in the first episode: long story short, she celebrated her birthday with Benjamin in her luxurious hotel suite (which she was paying for).

Dickens had fun with the scene where Julia introduced Ben to her family, an encounter which left Patrick (Sebastian Armesto) spluttering with impotent rage, Leo demanding “what the actual f**k?”, and Della offering stout non-judgmental support to her mother. Benjamin, far from being embarrassed or timid, responded to Patrick and Leo with flashes of naked hostility. Benjamin summed up their (and our) feelings: “You see this young-ish guy and you think ‘what’s his game?’”

"I hope Gold Digger is a catalyst for a conversation about why many of our prejudices are the way they are." The series looks at what happens when Julia and Ben fall in love, and the affect it has on her already damaged family. Gold Digger begins on BBC One at 9pm on Tuesday, November 12.
