Storyline

The novel opens with Jenny Bunn's arrival at her lodging-house. She's a young, strikingly beautiful, provincial Northern woman who has moved to a London suburb to take her first teaching job. Jenny has rented a room in the home of a middle-aged couple, Dick and Martha Thompson. Dick Thompson, is apparently some sort of an auctioneer and his wife Martha Thompson is bored, cynical, and openly suspicious of attractive young Jenny. The Thompsons' other lodger, Anna, is apparently French. Jenny soon meets Patrick Standish, an acquaintance of the Thompsons, who is immediately attracted to her. Patrick takes Jenny on a date to what seems to her to be a fashionable, upmarket Italian restaurant, but which Amis makes clear is a classless suburban pseudo-Italianate place. Impressed, Jenny lets Patrick take her back to the house he shares with Graham, an unattractive Scottish schoolmaster.

Magnificent performance by Simon Evans
14 May 2001 | by NickFell-2See all my reviews

Take a girl like you was a generally likeable programme. In terms of script, costume and creating a realistic impression of the period it was undisputed. However, the acting was on the whole quite atrocious. The only actor who really gave any life to his character was Simon Evans as Horse. Although not the biggest part, Simon Evans, in my opinion was unfortunate not to receive any kind of nomination for a BAFTA or other TV award. On the whole, I would give the programme 7 out of 10 and unfortunately not because ofthe acting but because of Simon Evans and the tremendous costume.
