Part of the Playhouse presents series. Was quite a short one this one. But seemed quite fast paced. The story itself is quite intriguing and builds up quite nicely though being short. Without too much background it tries to delve into the personal life and the work life of the district nurse being portrayed here in a round neighbourhood. The acting is pretty poignant and serious but a good job on that. The director does a good job in making the short story work as you'd be tempted to lengthen the story to give it more structure and completion so that's a job well done by the editor and director together. Loved the camera work as it was crucial in giving that chilling feel to the whole episode, it's very tough to film in this kind of setting but is captured and portrayed immensely well. All I. All could give it more than 6 stars as I thought the build up would lead to something more substantial or maybe I've just got used to commercial TV and cinema.
