So why d'you run away? Why waste all those vol-au-vents?
Cos it's not like I have to wear the dress to complete the set. I don't want to read about myself in the local paper: "Brave Cancer Bride Weds".
Or "Cancer Bride Flees Wedding".
Shit! It *is*, isn't it? "Wedding Proves 'Tomb' Much For Brave Claire"!

This all started off quite promising but after the first hour it quickly descended into farcical melodrama. Mark Strong gave a somewhat wooden performance and was really acted off the screen by Julie Graham. Unfortunately she was hampered by a lousy script and and a daft incomprehensible plot line. Tamzin played her usual self. The scene where she dreamed she was drowning was a genuinely powerful moment but was soon lost in the overall tangled storyline. The whole thing was unbelievable and a waste of three hours viewing time.The sort of melodrama that leaves you feeling cheated.
