I am sure the British can find better ways of telling a story than this. Four episodes strung together in a near three and a half hour plus adverts ex-lover bent on not being ex mini-saga, was probably the only way in which I would have bothered watching. When Fitzgerald was not overacting she was overeacting, and neither of her two buddy boyfriends were able to keep the doings on course. As well as the fact that there are numerous editing flaws.
Way too long for the story it had to tell: you could easily snip an hour out and nobody would notice the difference. Only the last episode manages to save everything from being a disgrace, and as each episode starts with those brief recapacitating look-backs, maybe it would be a good idea if you did not even bother with the first three.
Rather than a thriller this TV film is barely suspenseful, with poor acting in the most part. The only good point was the photography, whether indoors or out in the woods surrounding what I think is north of London.
