Trivia

Transmission was scheduled for 7 and 14 April 2011, but the programme was withdrawn with a few days' notice, despite extensive publicity of trailers and articles in listings magazines, because of a copyright claim by a third party that they had signed an exclusive option on the novel. The copyright issue was then resolved in May 2012 and the films scheduled for transmission on BBC4 in late September 2012. See more »

Compelling period drama
29 December 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

ROOM AT THE TOP, a two-part adaption of John Braine's '50s-set class-based novel, is a splendid example of what the BBC can do when they put their mind to it: that is, the creation of authentic, heartfelt and beautifully realised drama. No surprise, then, that it was hidden away on the schedules (like THE HOUR), banished to a lesser channel while the lunkheaded flagship shows (DOCTOR WHO, anyone?) are given all the money/attention.

Ostensibly, this drama is about a working class young man who struggles to make his mark in society, but in fact it's all about sex. The film concentrates on his relationships with various women, and a love triangle occupies much of the running time. Maxine Peake is the real revelation here, giving a performance so searingly honest that it seethes with a raw power. Jenna-Louise Coleman (TITANIC) doesn't get the opportunity to be more more than an ideal, and Matthew McNulty's lead character actually turns out to be a bit of a bastard, but it's Peake who makes this production shine.
