Goofs

In the first miniseries, A Woman of Substance, Emma's parents, Elizabeth and Jack, died one year apart, ages 40 and 45 respectively, long before World War I, and long before Emma's first marriage. However, the death dates of Elizabeth and Jack were moved forward by about 15 years in "Hold the Dream," and their respective ages at death were reduced by six years each, from age 40 to 34 in the case of Elizabeth Harte, and from age 45 to 39 in the case of father Jack Harte. Since the story in "Dream" is wholly dependent on the preceding story in "Substance," the date and age changes render the time lines almost impossible, and totally implausible. See more »

Strong Seagrove, too many characters
27 January 2013 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Contrary to the feelings of some others, I wasn't taken back much by the fact that Jenny Seagrove plays the part of Paula Fairley here as well as of that of young Emma Hart in the first series; she acts both women evenly convincing. Seagrove as Emma Hart/Paula Fairley is the embodiment of a strong, willful and independent woman, smarter than all the men she works and competes with. And she adds to that an aura, as someone else here mentioned, of strange beauty. Liam Neeson as Blackie is remarkable. He can act an old man, although his young, large stature gives him away.

The beginning of hold the dream was quite confusing, nearly all the characters were introduced at once, so keeping track was rather hard. It must have been over a year or so that i have seen A Woman of Substance, which could partly explain my confusion. Still, i think a cheap 'what happened previously' block at the beginning would've hurt no one. As the film progresses, the puzzlement is lessened, although there are too many sub stories and insufficient character development. Fewer characters would've helped...
