Storyline

Dr. Edmund Bickleigh is married to a particularly overbearing woman who reminds him at every turn that he is living in her house. But the good doctor has outside interests to help him cope: many of the town's female population seems to have had intimate relations with him. When a new arrival to town becomes involved romantically with Edmund, he decides maybe it was time his wife wasn't around much longer. He puts in place a plan to become free to remarry -- after all he has a cabinet full of lethal (and mostly legal) drugs on hand. But it's an old lover that proves his savior, at least for a short time. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey,com>

Ben Miller is amazing as is the rest of this cast
4 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the great pleasure of watching installment one of this film on PBS last night. All I can say is "wow." The Brits have, done it again! Amazing setting, great costuming and Ben Miller as Dr. Edmund Bickleigh is amazing.

I am an independent director and am preparing a short film for the State of Virginia set in the Revolutionary War and if we weren't so short for time (and sadly, budget, I'm sure Ben would cost a packet) I would SCRAMBLE to get him to play SOME part in this film! He has an intensity that I have not seen recently and his character is entirely believable.

The rest of the cast is just as impressive: Barbar Flynn, Lucy Brown, all of them absolutely amazing.

If you haven't yet seen this film and have the opportunity to do so, I could not recommend it more enthusiastically.
