A little too dark for my taste, but very well crafted.
8 November 2007 | by muminatorSee all my reviews

I would tend to be very open minded about anything with a cast and production team with this pedigree, and I wanted to like it. On the whole, I DO like it, but it is too dark for my taste. Having said that, I cannot ignore the craftsmanship in the production. It has subtlety which you would not expect from the subject material. I can recognise the depth that has been put into the writing, direction and acting, and for that, I applaud it. Miranda Richardson is frightening stark and awful in her interpretation - a skill she has always been able to project. It is her darkness that gave me the most discomfort...a credit to her. I sense it is something that I may want to watch a few times to really grasp.

Watch it...it is a scary (and funny) indictment of modern television.
