Check out the painting on the wall
5 December 2003 | by archie29See all my reviews

Watched this after reading a glowing preview in the Evening Standard and glad I did. On the surface it's well above average TV thriller fare. But a lot more is going on underneath too. The painting on the wall is just one example, an enigmatic picture that's juxtaposed with Amanda Redman's character in what must be the signature shot of the story, revealing several layers of mood in just a few seconds.

And there are other flashes of inspired direction you won't normally see in TV drama, such as the Francis Bacon-esque struggle of two characters superimposed on a travelling shot through a house towards the end result. It's stuff like this, where a lot of thought has been put in to adding visual depth to a story, that makes for worthwhile viewing.

Rock-solid performances all round and an outstanding sound mix/music score complete one of the best examples of the genre this year.
