Nick Laughland
6 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I think that the one true star of Like Father Like son was the director Nick Laughland.

He is an inspiring man and this drama really shows how much his talent should be recognised and awarded. His ability to bring the best out of all the actors involved and create a magical environment where all the stories came together is truly a remarkable achievement. This alone shows a man of true talent and although jam packed with stars he shone the brightest.

With his ideas and knowledge and commendable vision he alone created a masterpiece!

I am very much looking forward to another.
