Brilliant mystery series!
16 January 2001 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

This was an engaging and enthralling mystery series, with many unexpected developments along the way. Jennifer Ehle was excellent in the title role, and provided the program with a lot of momentum. The entire cast was good, with perhaps the exception of Adrian Dunbar, and the material that they had to work with was first class. Anyone looking for a screen adaptation of the novel will be disappointed, as Alan Beasdale has taken major liberties with his source material - but in my opinion, his version is better than the original. A worthwhile experience - hang in for the whole of the series for an enjoyable time!
