what a load of garbage
8 August 2011 | by (cambridge) – See all my reviews

Sunday Night and my wife has me sit with her and watch an occasional Cookson adaptation on Yesterday channel. I have to say I have been mildly surprised that up to now the few I have seen have been reasonably good, if predictable and a little cheesy. However Fifteen Streets does not fit into this at all.

What a load of tripe. Surely the book wasn't that bad. The acting was dreadful, John O'Brian sounded like Stephen Hawking attempting a bad Geordie impression. There was no story line that you could get into. The whole thing was absolute manure. Even the wife though it was awful so it really must have been.
