A delightful performance
15 January 2001 | by (Richmond, Indiana) – See all my reviews

The trick was to make a gutsy but inexperienced and introspective character come alive -- and from the opening screens to the end Helen Baxendale did the job. There are lots of scenes of Cordelia thinking and worrying her way through the problem she is investigating. This could have dragged, but the tension is well maintained; this should please lovers of classic British detection.
