Quotes

[discussing possible newspaper headlines after Claire has run out of church on her wedding day]
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"!
Elaine Spader: "Send Back The Cake - The Wedding's 'Cancered'"!

Great stuff!
23 November 2005 | by (England) – See all my reviews

There have been mixed reviews about Walk Away and I stumble, but I have to say that I enjoyed it.

The first part was a bit fast paced, moving the story along too quickly, and there was no chemistry between Claire and Andy. But, the concluding part made up for all of that! It was a heartbreaking story and you end up having sympathy for all the characters. I had tears strolling down my face at the end. There are no bad guys in this, and thats what makes it different to other dramas... Fantastic acting all round, especially the two leading ladies; Tamzin Outhwaite and Julie Graham, when they were together. Kate Bush's song 'This Woman's Work' was a good touch too, it fit in perfectly with Claire's situation.

It was a nice dedication to Tamzin's younger cousin, James Balwdin, who passed away with Cancer earlier in the year.
