When I heard about this series I was all ready for some good drama and great cinematography as the BBC tends to get these kinds of series so right. How wrong I was.
From the terrible dialogue which seems to have been adapted from a story with completely different characters, to actors struggling with a director who is way out of their depth.
The cinematography is something to be laughed at, even a first year student in drama school would have a much better eye than this. The shots range from capturing the vista with only the actors head at the bottom of the frame (they were the funniest scenes I have EVER seen!) to the foreground being filled with a wall or ketchup bottle!
Reading about the main crew it all became clear, these guys had been the main driving force behind Coronation Street and Emerdale, shows which carry no weight at all.
The BBC should be ashamed of such poor, poor film-making and how Dominic Leclerc and Polly Morgan sleep at night I have no idea. If I could have selected 0 out of 10 I would have.
Avoid at ALL costs!
