Excellent Plot & Cast.
26 January 2013 | by helenachilds21See all my reviews

Brilliant its just a shame we are unable to buy it on DVD for use in the UK. Why we don't know. Its a fantastic mini series with great effects. Definitely recommend it. If anyone knows how I can get a copy of this on DVD please let me know as I have been searching for this for years to no avail. The cast is first class as well as the story line. It gives an in depth view of the inner struggle a young woman has to face. Should she go on in life just accepting that she is different or throw caution to the wind and allow the wolf to take over completely. Her emotional journey is so life like and believable you can't help but watch right to the end. We hope one day to own a copy of this.
