The ITV1 Christmas 2003 showing of this production in the UK was sensitive and thoughtful, with two separate 2 hour long episodes meaning the production really had time to show its colours and the story time to develop. Performances, staging and screenplay were all excellent getting as close to doing a Hardy story justice as I have ever seen. Truly brilliant. 4 million well spent in bringing Hardy to a new audience. Only question is, with the production complete at the beginning of 2001, why did it take so long to reach us....
