It started of brilliantly...
24 February 2004 | by (Alkmaar, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This show, started of brilliantly with a good storyline and a passionate affair. Then, as the series progressed, it became a rollercoaster ride, a little bit downhill I'm afraid. Good fun all the same. Never repeated, not on dvd, a pity.
