What an absolutely fantastic 2 part drama. The cast were excellent, especially Tamzin Outhwaite. The storyline was realistic and believable. Frances' reaction to her friend Shaun's severed head (well i'm guessing that's what it was, it was left to our imaginations) gift wrapped in that box was brilliant - well acted. Lucas was pure evil and I felt so sorry for Frances being wrapped up in his "business" and having to give up her daughter and of course her identity and looks to protect herself from him and his mob.
The first half saw Tamzin as her gorgeous, glamorous self, and then the second half with a brown wig, fake nose and false teeth, Tamzin was un-recognizable. I loved Frances in the second part, the way she'd do anything to get her daughter back. I was on the edge of my seat when she caught up with Terry and Lucas, and when she went on a "date" with Lucas at his house I thought he'd recognise her by her voice or something for sure! The ending was great, i'm so glad it was a happy one with Frances managing to get her daughter back. And I was backing her all the way when she shot evil Lucas!
I love Tamzin's work, she is a fantastic actress. I look forward to her next project.
I give Frances Tuesday 10/10.
