Stitched together from an unshown tv series. Buy the series on dvd.
26 January 2002 | by (stockport, england) – See all my reviews

In general this is a compendium of four episodes from the unshown tv series The Veil. However the title episode is "borrowed" from British television. The Veil episodes are Summer Heat, Genesis, Food on the Table and the British implant, Jack the Ripper. The Veil is available complete on dvd and there seems little reason to watch or buy this edited compilation piece. The credited director David MacDonald probably never heard of the three Roach filmed episodes. Worth watching but go for the complete series instead.
