Drama about life at Rugby School in Victorian England. The headmaster is fair but not effective and life is brutal for the young boys because of bullying and it's consequences. The acting and character development are good and the roles well cast. It's a good adaptation of the novel and was filmed at The Rugby School. Written by
I've watched a lot of Drama's on ITV in this is by far the best.The acting was very good especially as most of them were 1st timers.Its also extremely different from the original B n W which was a lot more soft hearted than this version.But I think because of the way they showed the cruelty of what was happening made the programme an even more success because it was truer to the book(as I've been told)but It's also a time where you might flinch abit and turn away(I did)but don't let that stop you from watching it just shows the harshness of some of the boys and what Tom went through.I thought the boys in the roles of Brown,East,Tadpole and Aurther gave great performances even if u don't like the story watch it 4 there acting.It's also a real tear jerker so have them tissues next to you while your watching it,trust your going to need them but overall a great story for both male and female,and a fantastic remake of a timeless classic I'd give it 10/10 Proper Quality Watch it if ya get a chance:D:D
