A tale of paranoia and 'it's OK for me, but not you.'
Eve Peregrine receives a delivery of books at the breakfast table, it is in fact 'When Pyramids decay,' her own work, her stuffy husband Colonel George Peregrine is rather surprised as she hadn't confided her work in him. George is more interested in the sound of his own voice and his own stories, rather then his wife's recent success story. George, sets of for a landowner's meeting, but in truth he's playing about with Daphne, she tells George that the book his wife's written is causing a massive stir, it's taken off, he denies all knowledge, even his peers are are in on it too, it's selling out all over London, George must find out more about the personal characters in her book.
Some magnificent British stalwarts on show here, Joss Ackland and Pauline Collins, both wonderful, both appeared previously in earlier equally impressive episodes. Gareth Thomas is great too, they really started to pull the stops out with the casting in these later episodes. The casting here was intelligent, Ackland's powerful character is beautifully at odds with the subtle Pauline Collins.
I disagree with my fellow reviewer who says this looks visually drab, I think it's quite classy looking, it's well filmed, it looks and flows very well. I find it interesting and very engaging, I enjoyed it very much.
