A wonderful series.
21 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

It has been years since I saw this great series on PBS and don't know why it has not been rebroadcast or made available on streaming video. It would look dated now, but the storyline is so powerful and Ben Cross is fantastic as Dr. Manson as well as Claire Higgins as his wife Christine. Wonderful acing all the way around. Sure would like to see this again.
