Watched it Three Times !!
18 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

A classic ! Based on the Vic Brown trilogy by Stan Barstow, its a much more filled out portrait of the protagonist than was presented in the movie with Alan Bates, which is based on only one of the novels. Perhaps too slow moving for younger viewers, it is life as it is, without kidnappings, car and helicopter chases, hopping in and out of kinky sexual encounters balderdash etc. Great acting all around: Clive Wood who I've never seen since but this must be the highlight of his career; Joanne Whalley who's even better than she was in SCANDAL; Susan Penhaligon wonderful as always. And Robert Keegan, Constance Chapman,Neil Phillips and a host of other great character actors. The period detail, from the late fifties to the seventies, is outstanding! SEE THIS it's better than anything on masterpiece classic
