I am a poor colonial, Canadian, watching the BBC legal series "Silk". Here is the exchange for which I need a definition:

Billy: "... you're gold." Aisha: "No,...perhaps UK gold."

What is the meaning of 'UK gold' ?


UK Gold is a TV channel here in the UK that specialises in reruns of old television series.

    I'd like to think that such an anodyne meaning does not tarnish the UK gold that is still being mined in miniscule amounts somewhere in Wales. – Peter Point May 5 '17 at 2:33
