It passed the time, but I am only lukewarm about it
8 February 2021 | by kimmgouldSee all my reviews

I think my main issue with this was that none of the characters were particularly likeable. So I found I didn't much care what happened to any of them. My favourite character was the grandfather. Second thing, the title gives the clue that this is an exploration of what happens to a man when he becomes the husband of a successful politician, rather than a successful politician in his own right. It all seemed so 1980's, I feel like that horse has bolted, and the politics were dated as well, the same old same old political games. I watched it because, well Emily Watson and David Tenant, what could possibly go wrong? But I was only lukewarm all the way through.
