Brilliant performance by Juliet Stevenson
20 December 1999 | by See all my reviews

A brilliant performance by Juliet Stevenson is one of the highlights of this mini-series that studies the how to do "don't get mad get even" in British politics. How a scorned wife gets even with her husband SHOULD be a cliche, but a great script and good performances from all (incl. a small but pivotal role for Minnie Driver), moves it far away from cliche.
