Fantastic drama
2 January 2005 | by (Birmingham) – See all my reviews

what a wonderful adaptation of the novel! Beautifully filmed on location in rugby school,David Moore the director has made a really fantastic drama which is modern and exciting....better than any period drama on itv all year!!

the acting was first rate...Steven Fry was Super as Dr Arnold and really nice to see this actor leading a drama rather than playing the comic relief of a piece...maybe an award in the wings for this performance!! young Alex Petyfer was a good Tom Brown..holding his own in some tough scenes with fry.Joe Beattie was a satisfactory Flashman running the school house with his bunch of cronies! Clive Standen playing Brooke was a Magnicent Hero and really electrifyed the screen when he was on!the perfect juxtaposition to Beatties Flashman. And the two young Boys playing East and Tadpole were really quite brilliant...especially Dane carter playing Tadpole in the most memorable scene in the film where he is accused of lieing to Steven fry!! a jolly good film which i would advise all to watch AND HOPE TO SEE SOME OF THE ACTORS TO GO ON TO GREAT THINGS

Well done ITV
