Dreadful
11 September 2003 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Emma Thompson's career in the years following this series rightly cemented her reputation as a performer and writer. This, however, was not a good start.

Quite how someone as talented as Miss Thompson could come up with something as godawful as this is a mystery.

Thompson fans who have never seen this show, do yourselves a favour and avoid ever watching it. It can only spoil the magic.
