This is what I call drama
26 October 2000 | by (North Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

This is what British drama - good British drama - is all about: fine performances (not just a big name dragging a bunch of good-lookers), effective direction, an unbeatable, realistic script and effects that don't take over from actions.

Jennifer Ehle was excellent as the enigmatic Melissa in the title role, Julie Walters - as ever - turns out a stirring performance, and Diana Weston's drunken Hope brings a smile to the face with those Shirley Bassey impersonations.

Something of a gentle thriller, and something that will definitely keep you guessing until the end.
