Patrick Dempsy Shines
24 February 2005 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I saw this superb series years ago and Patrick Dempsy left an indelible memory for an outstanding performance.i have never forgotten it and can recall virtually every scene in it.I wondered what had happened to this young actor whom I knew only from some teenage movie called(I think) The Wa Wa Kid. Then he was a bit parter in a really angst ridden TV series called Once and Again in which he alone stood out as a psychologically disturbed chap.I could not remember his surname to see what he is up to so tracked him through this series..and just HAD to drop a note to say what a cool actor he is and how much I regret not seeing more of him.Anyone who has no seen this long saga should give it a whirl ..it really is very very good.
