Oh dear, another mangled remake, 31 December 2009
Author: Caitlin

Why, oh why do people think it is a great idea to remake a hugely successful and gripping novel, and completely screw around with the plot and characters. Nothing in this remake adds to the original, instead it twists it into a laughable and contrived mess. There are plot holes throughout - and god knows where all those automatic machine guns came from in the heart of England.

Heaven knows why writers/producers would take what was a proved winner, as demonstrated in the 1981 BBC series, and entirely rip its heart out. Very, very disappointing.
