A seminal work
29 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This piece has all the qualities that were so exciting about original TV drama at that time. A wonderful script, brilliantly realised and with excellent performances. Although written so long ago, the arguments remain valid in the present day, especially as the question as to whether we should increase our nuclear power option is very much on the agenda. With the excellent 'Perfect Strangers' and 'Shooting the Past' among his more recent works, Poliakoff is one of the very few writers who has continued to write to the same level over the last thirty years. Now that he directs his own screenplays, there is another layer of his genius added. 'Friends and Crocodiles', his most recent piece, retains the standards he has set for himself over the years. A new work premieres on BBC in Feb, I believe. Can't wait.
