Summer of sausages
10 June 2019 | by paulspencer-90394See all my reviews

Worth watching for the cinematography and the lighting. The sets are luscious; such a shame the actors keep getting in the way. Its not their fault; the story is one of those committee by the numbers sort of thing. White Christian men - bad. Diversity either by way of race, gender, disability, good good good. So out goes the realism for a round of applause from the well paid executives at the BBC. They should have just filmed a cooking show on the sets.
