Old sins cast long shadows in this classy production.
22 February 2016 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Robert Smythe has landed himself a big promotion, leaving behind a smaller job, Henry Traile enquires about the vacancy, and hands Robert a letter from a girl called Jane, a woman keen to find members from the MG club some years ago. Smythe encounters a young woman on a park bench, believed to be Jane, he gets into conversation with her. It transpires Smythe several years ago was involved in a hit and run, whilst driving an MG, he had run down ten year old Mary Welles. Smythe sets up a second meeting with Jane, worried that she's digging too deeply. Robert is snappy with wife Margaret, trying to guard his secret from her at all costs.

A delicious piece of casting, the very excellent Charles Dance, and the wonderful Zoe Wannamaker. Both are such strong performers, they bounce of each other wonderfully well.

This episode recaptures some of the quality of the first few series, that has for the most part been lacking for some years. It feels like a classy production, it's well made, nicely filmed, beautifully acted, a really nice accompanying music, a hell of a twist, altogether it just works.

It has the feel of a mini thriller about it, it's very, very good.

9/10
