A well acted TV mini-series.
16 December 2001 | by cmykleftySee all my reviews

Nigel Havers plays a seducing lying murderer con man in this mini-series. The way the story is written, you wonder if he will get away with his schemes or faces the conquests. It is well written that you keep guessing to the end. The Charmer is one of the best out of the Masterpiece Theater TV show.
