Amber - cute waste of time
28 June 2014 | by mel-pliedesSee all my reviews

Started with 6/10 from me in episode 1, then went to went up to 7 then crashed. I agree with Cipherz' comment - if you don't want to waste 4 hours of your life - don't bother watching this. Though it had great potential, it went nowhere!

BBC drama is normally very good but this was the most disappointing new programme I've seen for a long time. This show was developing some interesting themes, but the annoying production technique of dipping back into the past did not really work, as they never showed enough of another point of view of the story to add anything significant to the present situation.

Very disappointing. Evidence that the the BBC is still on a very downward spiral.
