Engaging drama.
15 March 2009 | by Ged-12See all my reviews

It's been over 40 years since I've read the novel by wells, but as adaptations go this is very faithful, with the Universal 1933 classic being perhaps the only other version that I've reasonably enjoyed. The rest of the Universal series and the many TV movies and series have always, for me, been simple adventures that use the invisibility theme as a means of inventing generally poor story lines.

What I enjoyed about this BBC serial is that the invisibility plays almost second fiddle to the drama as it unfolds. It's only during the later episodes that they are very cleverly, and mostly successfully, inserted into the ensuing drama. Finally let me add that Lila Kaye, as the pub landlady, gives Una O'Connor a good run for her money in the hysterics department.
