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 half bad
24 May 2002 | by (Cape Town) – See all my reviews

I must admit that I enjoyed this movie, but then again I have always been a fan of John Thaw.

The plot is fairly straight forward and includes all the usual 'good cop, bad cop' conflicts required: old man, 7 year old daughter; white man, black (almost) son-in-law etc.

The outcome is predictable, but the acting is quiet frankly superb - and not just John Thaw. So if it does show on a TV screen near you, I recommend spending a couple of hours in John Thaw's company.
