Storyline

When the National Gallery in London is flooded the Director, Quentin Lester, decides to transfer the entire collection to the Welsh caves where the collection was stored during World War II. The entire operation is supposed to be secret and the cover story is that they are a mining company looking to reopen the mines, good news to the economically depressed town nearby. It takes local school teacher, Angharad Stanner, all of a day however to learn what is really going on. She soon has the entire school at the site taking a tour but Quentin's refusal to open any of the packing crates leads to something of a falling out. Gradually, Quentin gets to know the locals, particularly the Hughes family. In the end, everyone benefits and learns from each other. Written by garykmcd

Excellent!
13 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The comments from the "racism, pure and simple" viewer might hold more sway if he or she wasn't called "bingedrinkingisamazing" from Wales.

Your credibility is slightly damaged by that... As for the accusation that Welsh people were portrayed as bumbling idiots, there was the usual smattering of jerks you get in any comedy drama set anywhere, and a lot of the characters were shown to be intelligent, witty and sensitive to the paintings.

Eve Myles shows herself to be capable of comedy as well as the Dr Who/Torchwood genre and Trevor Eve was his usual brilliant self. The kids in the drama did a great job too...thoughtful and comedic all at once.

I thought it was funny, interesting, diverting and a clever premise for a drama. Nothing to moan about here!
