Flora Delivers the Goods Again
10 June 2002 | by (London, or Hell as it's also known.) – See all my reviews

A gripping little drama about a village that is scandalised by a series of poison pen letters. Considering when it was made some of the accusations in the letters are pretty racy. Flora Robson is excellent as always. Although it's predictable the ending is great!
