Nice production of a story that is now high camp.
15 June 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

The Moonstone was of course a landmark Victorian novel it being the first detective novel.

There is much to enjoy here, the scenery and settings are great, the photography and music excellent. The principal actors, Greg Wise and Keeley Hawes, are fine, playing it straight and acting their way through the twists and turns of the often ridiculous plot with great sincerity. I wasn't too keen on Anthony Sher's Inspector Cuff I found it too stagy and mannered and some of the minor characters are over blown but all in all it's a good production.

Lots of fun if taken in the right spirit.
