Loss of dignity or loss of patience?
24 March 2005 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This was better than average fare for current drama and offered some thought-provoking content. The programme provided a look at the discomfort of growing old, the burden of having parents staying in one's house, and the diminishing dignity from one generation to the next.

I liked the lack of obvious progression in this programme - similar offerings tend to be mostly predictable. This contained surprises and in its selective viewpoint it challenged the viewer to take a side.

The father, played by Briers, gives humorous yet stoical reasons for his frailty ('It must be all that waiting about at Dunirk') but the younger generation effect patience yet clearly have a limited supply of it.

I eagerly awaited the inevitable confrontation and was surprised as most viewers would have been by the actions of Kevin Whatley's character. There was no easy resolution and the ending of the programme was rather abrupt. But it gave food for thought and was an enjoyable production.
