Good series, well-cast, right-balance
2 January 1999 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This mini-series/movie is an example of a well-made Australian TV Drama. The characters are believable, and well-cast for the most-part. You can feel yourself sympathising with the vicar and his brother, and feeling the frustration of the doctor. There is certainly something in it for everyone. It's good to see Jason Donovan in an "evil" role... not the prissy-clean character of typical castings.
