6 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

kindness of strangers was deadly and Sean Verey was amazing and so fit i mean what a hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ha ha!!! well anyway Hermione Norris was amazing too as the intruder and the mad woman (apologies i cant remember her characters name) and portrayed the role very well. it was very well done and i would love to see the two episodes again!!!! i just loved them to bits. i didn't see the start of the first but my friend recommended it and i thank her and it was brilliant and it was a bit scary with the whole building site bit at the end but Sean Verey was amazing and so HOT!!!!!!!!! it was set out great and it was a bit scary that that could actually happen in real life and i think it was good as well that it helps people be more aware that these things are maybe happening all around then and just to be warned. thanks and Sean Verey is amazing and SO gorgeous!!!!!!!!!
