every now and then.......
19 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

every now and then on British TV we still get the occasional perfect drama that reminds you how good writing and acting can click together so well. 'Conspiracy' was a classic example and watching Stan tonight has confirmed it. In fact, I only saw the last 20 minutes, from the scene in Hal Roache's office, but I knew instantly that I was watching something special. That economical dialogue in just one scene told me so much about the two main characters. The final scene was laughter and tears and a true analysis of a brotherly-friendship that can last a lifetime, literally to death. I'm going to wait up till 2am in the morning to watch the whole production. Only thing I don't understand - why isn't the actor who played 'young Stan' mentioned in the credits?
