Welsh Lad makes good in Hollywood ...
23 February 2014 | by sootyemuSee all my reviews

I cant believe so few people have seen this fantastic performance of Josh Richards playing Burton,i should say being lived in as you don't get the feeling its acting your watching its just like his recently published Diaries you can almost taste this performance, there's no other way of putting It As these days on British television there are not many thoughtful plays broadcast, this is one that should be seen by more viewers but as yet has not been repeated on Sky or any other channel. This was broadcast on sky Arts 2 on the 10th May 2013 but there has hardly been a review of this anywhere in the media,I would say its one of the best TV programmes I have ever seen And one you can watch a few times to appreciate the superlative acting . As yet no DVD release .
