A gem well worth watching
8 January 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I only found out about this show while reading about Eva Pope who was also in Waterloo Road which I am currently watching.

When I found she was in it I searched the net for a copy of it and thankfully eventually found it. I was able to watch each episode back to back and enjoyed it very much.

Basically it is about a family, a house and a secret. It is set in the same house in two different times eighty years apart.

The theme has been done before with differing secrets but it is still well worth watching. Some will find it a bit boring, but if you like well acted English drama you will not be wasting your time on this.
