Storyline

Ep 1 Young Ruth Clee's independent city life is turned upside down when her in-laws buy a long coveted country cottage on their doorstep for their son and daughter-in-law. Isolated and remote, it's the exact opposite of everything Ruth has planned for the future but the pressure to move is irresistible when she unexpectedly falls pregnant and her husband Patrick, ever in thrall to his mother, is determined to move. After the difficult birth of her son Thomas by caesarean section, Ruth, struggling to bond with her demanding and fractious child is driven to the point of exhaustion through lack of sleep. However, her subtly manipulative mother-in-law Elizabeth, is always on hand to ease tensions, and seizes every opportunity to remove the child to the sanctuary of her own house. Patrick's work leaves him little time to lend a hand and as Ruth bears the brunt of Thomas's demands matters come to a sudden head when baby Thomas suffers a cigarette burn. Ruth stands accused and Ruth is ... Written by Jeremy Gwilt

Uneven but with a lot of merits
3 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not much to add to what has been said already. Coming from someone who has not read the book, The Little House could have been better than it turned out to be but it had a lot of things that were really good. Lets start with those good things first, first and foremost Francesca Annis, who steals the show in the mother-in-law-from-hell role that has been seen many times before but rarely as chillingly as with Annis. In fact all the performances were very good and the chemistry is all believable, credit also should go to Lucy Griffith who was immensely likable as The Little House's most relatable character. The Little House looks great, very skilfully shot and the house is like a character of its own and suits the nature of the story very well. John Lunn's music is both charming and eerie while also being unobtrusive, the dialogue is snappy and also gives the right amount of foreboding, most of the direction is good and the characters in the first half are well written. The first half of The Little House is brilliant, the atmosphere is genuinely unsettling, everything's coherent and you at least know who the characters are and their motivations. The second half doesn't quite match up, the performances and atmosphere just about keep things afloat but it did feel rushed(I agree another episode or two would have helped) and ideas are introduced right out of the blue and are rarely fully explored. The ending is also agreed incredibly underwhelming, it could have been clever and creepy and was neither, instead it feels like an anti-climax and that it belongs somewhere else. Almost like the writers were not sure how to end it and just tacked one on. All in all, has a lot of good things, in the case of the acting and the first half great, but the rushed and underdeveloped second half and the ending make The Little House also uneven. 6/10 Bethany Cox
