Unbelievably poor.
16 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Back in the mists of time, Francesca Annis and James Warwick, with excellent support from Reece Dinsdale, played the parts of Tommy and Tuppence in 11 episodes of 'Partners in Crime'. It was an amusing, clever and beautifully acted series and did real justice to the stories of Agatha Christie and the characters which she created.

Now we have a plastic imitation which is so poor it's almost unbelievable. David Walliams wanders around looking vacant and completely lost while demonstrating a total inability to act. Jessica Raine, so good in 'Call the Midwife', demonstrates how acting is often as much about the casting as the actor's ability. Her 'Tuppence' seems disconnected from reality and she speaks her lines as if reading from an autocue. She appears awkward and uncomfortable in her role, nothing like the enthusiastic and wonderfully likable character portrayed by Annis way back in 1983. The other characters are like cardboard cut outs, with little presence and no memorability. The dialogue is, to say the least, 'clunky' and, overall, this adaptation is awful.

Why oh why do programme makers feel the need to remake wonderful classic series and films with today's latest 'names' in leading roles ? It rarely works and the results are frequently dreadful, as here.
