I watched this as I had seen the original British 4 part series a few years back. This version wasn't bad but was not in the same league as the series which starred Timothy Dalton as Eddie Myers leading a very good cast.
Le Plante is a good writer and her stuff is better in either a long movie version or spread over several episodes. This movie for TV version wasn't so good because the story needed longer to tell and cutting down on time and detail just made it look as though it was cheaply made.
If you compare it to the 1992 4 hour series it shows just how mediocre it is. Nothing wrong with the acting, just that a good story was badly diluted.
