To see will be to enjoy a wonderful series.
22 June 2003 | by (Hamilton, Canada.) – See all my reviews

A superb series, excellent script and great acting. This should not be missed, anyone who likes the British dramas will not be disappointed with this fare. Each week reveals a new aspect in the mind of the conniving Ralph Gorse, Nigel Havers, a man who has no scruples and will stoop to anything, even murder, to further his ambitions and his bank account.
