Excellent Series

This recently played on TV and my friend and I were totally hooked every Friday night watching it. Of course when the series ended we both HAD to get the video!

The story is set in England in 1965 and two twin sisters (who not only look nothing alike are totally different people) are finishing school. Living with their father and Grandmother who raised them, their life has been planned out for them by the domineering Grandmother "Mother Brooks", a bitter woman disappointed at life (you have to wait until the end to find the true reason). However, when a trio of musicians come to town, life as mapped out for the girls takes a different turn ....

I cannot really praise the acting enough in this series. Having seen Sue Johnston, who played Mother Brooks, in other productions, she was marvellous as an older woman. The casting of Gillian Kearney as Eloise was also inspiring. David Thelfall as Norman, truly gave me the creeps, in so far as when I recently saw him in another movie my skin crawled.

This is a really good miniseries (as only the BBC can do!) that certainly kept me hooked and I hope they do a follow up.

If you are a fan of sixties music there is the added bonus of the music.
