Irish drama at its best
14 November 2005 | by (Brantford, Canada) – See all my reviews

Brought up on a diet of the "Riordans" and "Hall Pictorial weekly", the thought of Ireland's national broadcaster producing a "Shogun"-type of mini series was something of a surprise and so many people turned in to see just what a mess RTE would make of "Strumpet City". They were in for a surprise. What a superb drama which had everything except a big budget. The best of Irish talent was there could be no complaint about the acting. David Kelly, as "Rashers", was perhaps the best of the lot but even Peter O'Toole in his short time on the screen was brilliant. It will look dated now but at the time it was top quality and done on a very limited budget. I believe RTE had tried a similar effort on the 1916 rising earlier but no copies exist. What "Strumpet City" shows is that when RTE put their mind to it they can produce quality mini series but tend to stick with safe soap operas and quizzes. I will be adding this to my DVD collection if my wife gets the hint and surprises me at Christmas with it!!
