I saw this episode last night and it was riveting television. The
acting and cast were superb and the tension was palpable. The story is
that after a seemingly innocuous incident in the park Brian, a
respectable teacher, finds his life going into a tale spin. Once the
microscope is shone on his life all sorts of inferences begin to be
drawn causing pain not just for him but for his family. He is deserted
by friends and his family life starts to fall round his ears. Neil
Dudgeon is excellent as Brian and the little cameo roles by Tim Spall
and Jim Broadbent are wonderfully creative touches. BBC drama at its
best. Its why we pay the license fee.
