Cliché city
15 April 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

My guess is that somebody at the BBC must have promised Jessie Wallace a star 'vehicle' after EastEnders, and this was it. Here she gets to outdo herself in EastEnderishness. Admittedly she does this very efficiently, but who needs it? Everything in this film is clichéd to the ultimate degree. The characters are stereotypes one and all.

Nathaniel Parker plays the standard posh public school person that he has cornered the market in. He is actually the head of a public school in this one. Only he goes silly over Jessie Wallace and her son (who live in the worst street in Britain). He's engaged in a feud with his deputy head and giving a place to a boy from the gutter is part of that.

The boy himself has an accent quite unlike the familiar EastEnders one of his mother and the rest of the family. How is that to be explained? I found him quite hard to understand.
