Serena Scott Thomas,
i until now thought it must be me ! i have been banging on at the bbc to replay this classic drama for nearly twenty years , and sadly "lone voices" don't have much impact. I was 16 when i saw the one and only showing of this ( next year will be 20 years since it has been aired) and no other drama has had this effect on me . Spring 84 was a long time ago , but i can still see it in my mind. i think the intial attraction was patsy kensit as she was devastatingly attractive , but as i watched the story took its grip . it has a love story that has more twists and turns than a ride at alton towers , and more to the point an ending that is so powerfull , and heart braking , because (like in the book ) you spend all the time hoping that love will find a way and sadly - i can't say! ,due to the websites guidelines( read the book! ) . Some may say it's obvious and cheesy but: true romance is , to all but those involved . I hope that someday the beeb will replay this (so does my wife , as she has heard me go on about it , but i can't show her !) my advice to anyone is read the book !
