unexpected delight - brilliant!!!
17 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

I caught this drama unexpectedly, I think on Sunday afternoon, on TV over Easter. I was bowled over by the quality of the story and atmosphere, as well as the young performances, and wondered why it hadn't had more publicity raving about it, and why it appeared to be hidden away in the schedules. It shouldn't have been! CLAY was wonderfully evocative of both Frankenstein and Jewish legend of The Golem of Prague, yet never fell back on the tired "with one bound" dramatic cheats that afflict other TV fantasy shows (e.g. Doctor Who!). It also had a Biblical subtext that was never explicit. I don't know the book it was based upon, but I look forward to more work from the screenwriter, and the director.
