too much melodrama
7 September 2013 | by rose-taylorSee all my reviews

okay, fist: I love David Tennant, reason I saw this. Second: I only saw one episode. So perhaps it gets better. But the melodrama in the first episode was just too much for me. The acting is way lower than normal BBC television. The story could have been so good. But I couldn't detach to the characters because the total over the top acting. That mustn't be the fault of the actors. It is in the script and the directing and everything together is just not very good. The only performance I liked was the one of the oldest daughter, Natasha Watson as Lucy. Probably a movie for David Tennant fans, and teens and grans on holiday. But this is definitely not David Tennant at his best.
