An enjoyable tale of love and betrayal, complex but rewarding.
30 December 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Toby Grafton is on the board of his Father's company, he's locked in a nasty feud with his father and chairman of the board Sir Wilfred. Toby has gotten engaged to the beautiful Karen, a dead ringer for Sir Wilfred's deceased wife. Sir Wilfred believes Toby has done it to cause him hurt and bring about his downfall, he even outs Toby as being gay at a Dinner Party. The engagement is broken off, and Wilfred loses a poker game, and money to Toby. Toby's plan comes to life and Karen is left with a choice.

Quite a complicated story, with lots going on, any many twists and turns, it seems a little clunky at times, but it' watchable enough, very well acted, Tony Britton in particular stands out as Sir Wilfred.

7/10 Once again as you watch you have no idea which way it's going to go, until the very last you're guessing who's the victim, and who's the perpetrator.
