Fox was a British television drama series produced by Euston Films and Thames Television for the ITV network in 1980. Consisting of thirteen episodes, it recounted the lives of the titular Fox family, who lived in Clapham in South London and had gangland connections. It was notable in that it was an early work that featured the criminal as the protagonist.
Goddard noted that a dominant theme of the show was loyalty.
The show aired on Monday nights, but received fewer viewers than BBC's Yes, Minister.
