Typical ITV Drama!
22 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was looking forward to seeing 'Losing Gemma' as I had read the book a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. However, typical ITV messed it up! Alice Eve, who played Esther, wasn't too bad although her accent veered in and out. The actress playing Gemma was so annoying that if I was on holiday with her, I could quite easily lose her on the first day and never want her back! Jason Flemyng hammed it up as the creepy Zac and Jonas Armstrong was OK in a fairly undemanding role as Gemma's ex-boyfriend Steve.

Esther and Gemma meet in a nightclub through a mutual friend who is supposed to be going to India with Gemma. When the friend breaks her leg and can't travel, Esther steps in to accompany Gemma. The first part was genuinely unsettling as the pair meet Zac and Gemma and are invited on a boat trip with them. Esther is suspicious of the couple, but Gemma, presumably being more naive, doesn't share her suspicions.

All the characters are rather one-dimensional - Esther is whiny, Gemma is loud and annoying, Zac is creepy, Steve is shouty. It is hard to care about Gemma's fate and you can see the twist coming a mile off! I think a screen adaptation of 'Losing Gemma' could make a great TV or film drama, unfortunately, this was not it!
