Being a James Herbert fan I'd read this book many years ago and enjoyed it. This mini series only serves to disappoint. The jumping between two different time periods becomes confusing and tiresome and the story crawls along at a snails pace. Suranne Jones although acting well becomes annoying and repetitive as the grieving mother. Some parts have been altered from the book which I find most infuriating....if you're going to adapt a book, do it faithfully or not at all. If you're really bored and have nothing else to do it passes the time easily enough but not for true horror fans.
