Outstanding doco-drama
13 December 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

What a clever idea! The story of the founding of the Mills and Boon empire is told in three separate ways. First, the real story of the early days of the company from 1908 to the 1920s is dramatised, then a parallel story is introduced of a 30-something 21st century university lecturer leading discussions on the Mills and Boon phenomenon. A third story also unfolds as a would-be author acts out her fantasies in the 1970s. The way these stories are resolved is very satisfying and believable. In their way, they are all Mills and Boon stories and all tell the history of the company's success by demonstrating the attraction of the age-old themes. All acting is first class and the attention to detail in the First World War era is admirable. I've never read a Mills and Boon novel but I would no longer be ashamed if I had.
