Not much fun, but a very worthwhile hour's viewing.
25 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It is my experience that anything with Bill Patterson in it will be an enjoyable and satisfying watch - he is one of those 'good value for money' actors that never disappoints. Here he plays his usual determined, steadfast and 'man of great practicability' role in a slightly more subdued manner than usual which, given the gravity of the subject matter of this production - the Flu Pandemic of 1918, is entirely appropriate.

The whole cast (notably Kenneth Cranham) work well together to do good justice to this depiction of a serious episode in our history which may well be totally unknown to a great many people today. Sets, costumes and dressing are all first rate and there has been great use made of original movie footage from that time. I can recommend this little gem to anyone wanting an hour's serious entertainment and an insight to events which I suspect have been all but forgotten and yet which still resonate every year with the start of winter....
