User Reviews

strong, well written, well acted, intense.
8 September 2002 | by kenhelnetteSee all my reviews

Never really watched other wainright series "at home with the braithwaights." but this is magnificant. Two main stars are brilliant. In this modern version of wuthering heights the roles of cathy and heathcliff are swapped. The son of a doctor and the abused daughter of a local alcoholic farmer have a passionate obsessive love affair. Thwarted by his snobbish parents and some very personal home truths, the two are forced apart. He leaves to go to university. The events then take on both the Brontee and also more modern slants. The direction is fast paced and uses the moors in most scenes and is a piece of absolutely fantastic very grabbing television. Is just unmissable tv!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
