About as good as TV drama gets
27 March 2004 | by Tony-166See all my reviews

This was a short series recently aired on UK BBC1. Three separate stories, each consisting of two , 1 hour episodes. Excellent casting and top flight acting from all concerned, particularly the ever-reliable Bill Paterson.

I won't spoil anything by giving any plot details, but suffice to say, each of the three tales are engrossing and thought-provoking, with an underlying theme of possible paranormal events. Don't be put off by that though, because the intelligent scripts leave many ideas open, and lots of questions unanswered.

Well, I seem to have used up all my cliches ! All I can say is, if you get a chance to see these episodes, don't miss it. Short, yes, but as sweet as they come.
