Touching drama
30 October 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Sophie Okonedo is the true star of this ITV Drama. She plays Karen, a young woman who self-inseminates to get a baby, against the wishes of her boyfriend played by Andrew Lincoln. The pair split up and Andrew Lincoln's character is unaware of his newborn daughter.

Clearly, this was chosen as a story because of the current situation in England concerning father's rights and the closing scene ties in with current events very well, without being too far-fetched. It is also humorous and tastefully written.

This is a well-acted, well-scripted drama about a father's fight for his rights. But Okonedo is the star. :)
