Elaine Spader: So why d'you run away? Why waste all those vol-au-vents?
Claire Holmes: 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".
Elaine Spader: Or "Cancer Bride Flees Wedding".
Claire Holmes: Shit! It *is*, isn't it? "Wedding Proves 'Tomb' Much For Brave Claire"!

Sadly very lacking.
20 November 2005 | by (Glasgow, UK) – See all my reviews

ITV had built this up quite a lot as something you would not want to miss. Turned out it was something you would want to miss. There was a lot of potential about this story. However I believe they focused on the wrong things. The relationship between Andy and Claire just seemed nothing more than a one night stand. Yeah I know it was meant to be passionate, but just seemed to be had sex one night accept that they love each other and next part of the story. Considering this was on for two nights at 90 mins each it was a sloppy piece of work. Mark Strong (Andy) and Julie Graham (Elaine) were good and performed well, did feel like a husband and wife. Tamzin well she just seems to get big jobs for her looks and they just end up being projects that you think oh not another one. Though I don't think Gwyneth Paltrow could have saved this. Was just a mess and built up to be a heart felt, tear jerking drama. I watched this with the girl friend and I was in tears thinking could it last any longer. Finally did like the music Kate Bush.
