Fantastic
3 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was a great drama in which both the writing and the acting was fantastic. The story was a little over the top but it was meant to be, it's a black comedy similar to ITV's earlier outstanding drama 'At Home With The Braithwaites'. The scenes between Helen Baxendale and Suranne Jones were undoubtedly the best, they had great chemistry and bounced well off each other. The return of Helen Baxendale to our screens was fantastic, she has done a few other one off dramas but none as good as 'Dead Cever'. It's a must see for anyone who is a fan of these dramas and is not the 'terrible drama' that has been described by others.

But don't take my word for it the critics aren't always right as everyone has different tastes, see it before you judge it but you must see it whatever you do.
