After watching Alex Pettyfer in his new film stormbreaker, which I must say was excellent,having read all the Alex Rider books, had to take my son to see it, I remembered back to the TV drama of Tom Browns school days, a touching and well acted drama, had to order the DVD,so have now watched it several times, Alex Pettyfer was amazing as a new young actor, he made a very convincing Tom Brown, his ability to use his eyes to act was outstanding and acting along side Stephen Fry made the drama so real you believed you were there,a stunning school and location didn't make the drama look dull it was truly magnificent, all the actors did a great job, hope to see some of them in the future, my favourite part was the stealing of the chickens,then sitting in the classroom trying to hide ones self, along with the explanation, great eye contact between Tom and the Doctor. this was a great book to read and then effectively made into this wonderful TV drama,I would recommend this DVD to every one.
