May be not a complete waste of one and a half hours, but I can think of plenty of better ways to spend the time. In fairness though this one off TV drama did have a couple of things going for it, the beautiful scenery for one, and the acting wasn't all that bad.
The problem I had with it though was the script, painfully predictable, and it had been done before. In essence there was not much need to watch the program, the advertising trailer pretty much gave you all you need to know to plot the course of the story from beginning to end.
However I managed to sit through it, and I must admit at some points laughing at the humour, the dog incident and the small Scottish band were notable moments. They could not save it though. There were small glimpses that the cast and crew were trying to produce something with meaning and purpose, in fact the only reason I can think of for why they had Angus Deayton with that ridiculous hair cut was to make him look uglier, but in the end the inevitable predictability of it all was its down coming.
