A very funny, well acted programme
10 July 2000 | by (Suffolk, England) – See all my reviews

A Many Splintered Thing is an excellent show. It's good to see that Alan Davies isn't being type cast as the brain-box Jonathan Creek type and showing off his excellent acting skills. (Only let's hope he hasn't abandoned the stand-up all together!). Unfortunately Victor McGuire has been. In many productions that he has been seen in he has always played the best mate, admittedly he does play that type of character very well, but it would be nice to see him branch out. Kate Ashfield has a wonderful spark playing Elly, and I hope this is only the beginning of her television ventures.

The script is very well written and played with complete depth and chemistry. The whole cast works well together and it definately deserves another series.
