Ruined by Francesca Annis' bizarre performance
26 February 2015 | by (essex) – See all my reviews

The series had potential but some of the episodes are directed in a bizarre fashion. The costumes are very good, James Warwick is watchable and gives the idea of what might have happened if Roger Moore had ever taken the acting lessons that he so desperately needed. Reece Dinsdale is amusing enough as a young cocl-er-nee type. The problem is that Annis' performance is so arch, brittle and OTT that it makes the entire thing unwatchable.

The character she plays was a nurse and there is no hint of worldliness in Francesca's performance (although in fairness the scripts get the character completely wrong too). She is far too old for the role and her make up is extraordinary ( in a negative way).Its like watching an aging amateur drama diva in a lead role in a television series.

Dodgy acting aside ( and Annis has given fine performances in several other productions)the series seems rather insubstantial and lightweight. It has not aged well.

I had hoped to enjoy this and was rather let down by the whole thing.
