Hits its target
20 November 2003 | by notmicroSee all my reviews

Harmless bit of bland, implausible romantic fluff for the gals. Its an example of why I stopped watching "Masterpiece Theater" years ago; also it is targeted squarely at the primary fundraising-base for PBS these days, which is middle-aged women.

Robson Green once again does his patented squinty-eyed turn as a quirky younger man romancing an older woman; he doesn't have very many years left to play this type of character. He certainly does have that mysterious key quality where you can't take your eyes off him on-screen; however I always wonder what serious actors really think of him. I was surprised here that the production didn't bother to disguise how short he is (much shorter than his female-lead romantic interest).

The only other interesting actor is Michael Maloney, but his one-note character gives him nothing to do but look pained all the time.
