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'"!

Very sad & moving....
16 November 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

don't normally watch tearjerkers much, but as this was penned by the Spooks team I thought I would give it a go, and I am glad I did.

It was thought provoking, sometimes sad, sometimes funny and very moving...choking back tears at times! If you get a chance, watch it, as it was very well done indeed.

Oh, and if you're thinking that the grass may be greener outside your marriage/relationship (where you ARE actually happy but maybe considering straying...or have been tempted..) WATCH IT IMMEDIATELY.

I'd never rated Tamzin Outhwaite much as an actress, or Julie Graham for that matter, but they were both excellent. My only complaint would be the kinda syrupy bit near the end with the daughter and Claire...but that's a minor complaint...
