A bit disappointing
30 July 2000 | by (Launceston,Tasmania,Australia) – See all my reviews

After all the pre viewing hype I found this mini series to be not as good as I had hoped for.The story line was confusing and the acting left something to be desired.Lisa McCune in her first major role tried hard to be the heroine but she did not fit the part as a London cockney and her accent was false.However for an Aussie production it was quite good viewing and such series should be encouraged.
