Storyline

Stephen Walby, a quiet and introspective young man, has spent his entire life exploring the local moor and writes articles on its ecology for a provincial newspaper. His primary source of income is as a furniture restorer where he works with his embittered father. Stephen's mother deserted both of them many years before, and the trauma of that experience stills haunts him as an adult. After meeting and conversing with a beautiful blonde artist working on the moors, he subsequently discovers her brutally murdered body. When Detective Inspector Mandible investigates, Walby becomes the D.I.'s prime suspect - especially when he discovers that Stephen's four year marriage has never been consummated.

Colin Firth versatile actor
9 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having watched this fine, tense thriller it proved that Colin Firth is a versatile and vastly underrated actor. Forever linked with 'Mr Darcy' I feel this showed more depth and that as well as playing comedic and upper class gentry he shows that he can reach within himself to play a role against type that was entirely believable. Excellent portrayal as man tortured by doubts, loved but unloving, his only friend being the moor itself. A very good supporting cast. Syliva Syms as the mother who abandons her family was very much true to form with a performance one would expect from this 'old school' actress. The scenery was breathtaking and added to the sense of foreboding that builds from the very beginning.
