I would have looked after her.
Committed for life - all ten weeks of it? You know what? You haven't answered my question: are you going to the funeral. Because no matter what happens, I'm gonna be there. No matter how horrible it is.

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.
