Great Adaption.
28 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

I remember this adaption quite clearly and it was made at a very convenient time. It was a featured text in our English Literature exam and I recall writing with great enthusiasm about the book and it's plots! It was a well acted piece and a fantastic vehicle for the (by now) underrated talents of the lead Imogen Stubbs. It also featured a couple of actors who would go on to be recognisable through work in TV especially Colin Tarrant who was later in The Bill. The sexual elements of the story were well handled and the scene involving the seduction of Ursula by her teacher was especially poignant. Kate Buffery was my fantasy woman for ages afterwards. It's a shame that given the number of channels the BBC has that this adaption has not been repeated or released on DVD. It is superior to Ken Russell's adaption in all ways and would win a new generation of fans if repeated today.
