Trivia

Although the story was based in Somerset, the house used for the exterior scenes shot, was in Cheshire. This was to get a house that fit the time scales shown through the story line and close enough to Manchester, where the interiors for the house were filmed in a warehouse studio. See more »

Recommendable family drama
16 January 2002 | by khatcher-2See all my reviews

Surprisingly good - Patrick Lau, specialist in TV films like `The Scarlet Pimpernel', once again with tight direction bringing out the best in some very good actors. Interesting plot which unexpectedly comes up with an almost `happy ending'. Intricate and delicate contemporary families matters are explored here in a rather unusual situation.

Well worth a watch if it comes up on your TV.

Good accompanying music, better photography, though it did not show us very much of the countryside around the locations in the west of England - Bristol and Weston-super-Mare (Somerset), - which was a shame. Character-driven piece with some good dialogues well played out by the actors with some moments which are truly excellent.

No clichés, no `soap', no saga: just good, clean family relations drama.

This is a production by Granada TV, UK in two episodes of 90 minutes.
