Very poor - the only bad Wexford adaptation
21 February 2003 | by (Oxfordshire, England) – See all my reviews

"The Veiled One" stands out like a sore thumb from all the other adaptations of Ruth Rendell's "Inspector Wexford" books because it is spectacularly bad. This is due to unsubtle, heavy-handed direction; too many intercut scenes which lead to spaghetti-style storytelling; excessive use of dramatic music and sound effects; stilted acting and dialogue - especially the scenes with Reese and Wexford in hospital. This is the only Wexford adaptation that does not work at all for me.
