Tom Fitzhenry: What's Mrs Robbins conjoured up for us today?
Mr. Robbins: I can't be definite, sir. It may be a form of stew.

Tom Fitzhenry: Ah yes, I've had this before. It's actually less intimidating than it looks.

Beautifully done (no pun intended)
5 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

I was dubious about watching this TV film when it re-ran on ITV. Mainly because of it's followup, Vontrapped, with Caroline Quentin, which was extremely dark and full of modern day 'issues'. I was in for a pleasant surprise.

The setting of this film was superb and believable, and furthermore the casting was excellent. Martin Clunes perfectly played the rather stuck-up Englishman clinging to the ways of the past in his run down stately home, hiding from a world he believes is not ready to accept his appearance.

The film challenges issues of the holes we create for ourselves, and furthermore the assumptions we make about other people's beliefs and acceptance levels.

If you want to have a heartwarming tale which is beautifully shot and acted, this would be the one to chose. Its short, but packs in everything it needs to in the time. Its funny, but poignant, and subtle. And for this I think it merits a high rating.
