More true to the books than the earlier movie.
31 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

This fine 10-part series seems unlikely to appear on DVD for two reasons. Firstly it's very long and secondly, there's a better known if inferior movie adaption available.

I discovered the final episode recently while sorting through old video tapes and found it just as enjoyable as the last time I watched it many years ago. Clive Wood is an excellent actor and is probably better known for his later work on the classic police series, THE BILL.

The script is true to the book which I've read several times and it is indeed a totally realistic portrayal of the times, now long gone. The supporting cast is solid as well. Only the static camera work, limited no doubt by budget considerations, dates the series.

Recommended for all fans of classic British drama.
