Wonderful
20 June 1999 | by (North Yorkshire, England) – See all my reviews

It was brilliant. I could watch it over and over again. As my video recorder is currently out of action I can't do this at the moment.

Neil Morrissey obviously stole the show. It's a shame that the TV magazines in England didn't seem to give him the credit he deserves! The rest of the cast were also brilliant. Jane Horrocks, Martin Clunes etc.

As a "child of the 80s" I can relate to what happened then and how it is being portrayed now.

PS If Neil Morrissey needs his "bits" massaging after the agony he must have suffered while in costume he's very welcome at my place!
