Great Series
30 December 2005 | by madisonkenSee all my reviews

This one turned me on to both Paule Milne, the author whose work I now look for on BBC productions, and Miranda Richardson, who is a wonder as a mother terrified after her children are kidnapped. And I've always like Frederick Forrest. A bit more background on the plot: What happens when old comrades in a violent (the bombing) radical 60's group (think Beider-Meinhof or Weather Underground) come back into your life as a now contented middle class mother whose radical youth is way in the past (or so she thinks). To keep her silent because one of them is running for a high political seat, or is it because one of them is a powerful industrial force, or is it because the government hasn't forgotten about your activities and wants some information--anyway, off go her kids and people close to her get killed. Time to panic? I'd say so. Her ex-husband isn't much help. Along comes alcoholic, disillusioned Fredrick Forrest. Can he save the day? What the h is going on? The plot keeps you involved the whole time.

I've missed taping the first episode but have the last four or five. Even now I like watching it once in a while. Why it's not on DVD is beyond me.
