School teacher Chris Bevan is a dutiful husband to his dull wife, Josie, and ingrate daughters. His best friend knows Chris' heart always belonged to Marian, his vibrant, flippant fiancée, who mysteriously disappeared years ago. Suddenly he sees her in a shop and can't help following her. He gives up as she has a new identity, as wife of plumber Bernie Sullivan. Bernie's real passion is Houdini-era 'real' magic, while in fact she's his terrified captive, forced to replace his late assistant. Furthermore one of Bevan's daughters has a phone-relationship he forbids, deeming it dangerous on principle, ignoring this is real and ties in to Marian's plight. Written by KGF Vissers

Disturbing and gripping
8 September 2005 | by (Midlands, UK) – See all my reviews

Kelly Harrison is the titular Marian in this "inspired by true events" thriller about a young woman abducted outside her home and forced to live a different life under a different name, only to be spotted and followed by a former boyfriend 15 years on.

'Marian, Again' is a disturbing potboiler which keeps you guessing: How did Marian's captor manage to convince her to adopt a new name and live with him? Will her ex-boyfriend (a bewildered, anguished Stephen Tompkinson) rescue her? What wicked plans does Marian's partner (Owen Teale, oozing evil) have in mind for the future? This enthralling chiller is elevated from the usual made-for-TV fodder by a dark tone and excellent performances - recommended.
