twisty thriller
23 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

By chance we saw this on TV in the UK, way back in 1985, but it is still vivid in my husband's and my minds. Who's the real creep. Is it the IRA kidnappers? Is it the clod of a husband, a business magnate, who refuses to pay up? Harriet Walker is delicious as the apparently spoiled dilettante wife caught in between. No wonder she's tempted by the young IRA thug. She is trying to protect her classically hopeless and willful teen daughter as well. The pace is as exciting as any episode of 24. Too bad the series has fallen through the cracks. Why has it not been picked up by PBS? or IFC? The title, while a wry comment on the plot, is not catchy enough perhaps. But don't get me started on TV series which disappeared. E.g. Rising Damp. Pennies from Heaven, w. Bob Hoskins.
