A Nurses Home full of bed time secrets!
23 August 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately this show is not readily available to the public on Video! Having seen the show on television, I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a fairly accurate adaptation of P D James's Novel"A Shroud for a Nightingale" The cast is excellent and Roy Marsden is perfectly cast as the central hero, Adam Dalgliesh. Joss Ackland, plays the egotistical Courtney-Briggs to perfection and Sheila Allen, the seemingly aloof Matron Mary Taylor, exuding vibes of attraction for Adam.

One scene stole the show! The scene where Dalgliesh interviews a slightly drunk Delia Dettinger (Margaret Whiting) The parody of 'above and beyond the call of duty' is beautifully played by Marsden and Whiting. The result, is humour underscored by underlying erotica between the two, with only a necktie being removed! Great stuff, which only such British actors can succeed in ! If it comes to your screens in a repeat, I recommend it!
