"Gripping, Moving, Sometimes Disturbing...Always Believable"
17 February 2004 | by thisisheavydocSee all my reviews

This gripping, moving and sometimes disturbing portrayal is so powerful that it will leave you deep in contemplation but at the same time hand you a sizeable chunk of cheery satisfaction, for this drama boasts a finely executed array of acting talents that make this lengthy time piece perfectly believable. A UK drama that Britons can be truly proud of.
