Storyline

Harry Jenkins is a self-made business man, who one day receives a message that his only daughter has died in a car crash. Last time he saw his daughter was at his wife's funeral. When trying to deal with his daughter's affairs, he finds out he is a grandfather of a nine-year-old girl, named Saffron. Since he is her only relative, social services hands over Saffron to him. At first he tries to get rid of her, but he soon finds out that they share more than his daughter, Saffron's mother. They take a trip from Manchester to London, to find Saffron's estranged father, but they find so much more. Written by Louise J-L

Not as good as expected
21 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this with expectations that it may be good due to the reviews here. However I found it a little hackneyed and predictable. John Thaw has never really appealed to me as an actor. I watched a couple of Morse episodes which were OK but nothing out of the ordinary in spite of it's "much-loved" tag. I always hated The Sweeney and was never drawn to any other Thaw projects. I just found the relationship between Thaw's character and Saffron unbelievable-in fact I found Saffron unbelievable as a 9-10 year old girl. The scenes that took place in the few days after the death of the child's mother were particularly unconvincing - people just do not behave like that. Of course this was a drama and it was what it was - a couple of hours entertainment. I certainly would not recommend it to anyone as a programme to watch as a priority. All that said everyone in this acquitted themselves fairly well in acting terms, so no brickbats for that.
