Product Description

Three-part British drama series starring Richard Johnson, Dorothy Tutin and Tara Fitzgerald. In Part 1, the tomb of a medieval Bishop is unearthed in the grounds of Melpham House and hailed as one of the most important archaeo- logical finds of the century. Could it be a hoax, however? In Part 2, Gerald Middleton (Johnson) tries to find out the truth behind the discovery of the Melpham idol. In Part 3, Gerald, haunted by memories from the past and guilt, searches for Dollie Stokesay (Tutin). Does she hold the key to the mystery of the Melpham excavation? Features a brief appearance by a 16-year-old Kate Winslet.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets 12 July 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
By any standards at all this is masterly story-telling, originally in Angus Wilson's novel, of course, but also in this exceptionally effective adaptation by Andrew Davies. It's inventive, sad, funny, intelligent - what more could you ask for? There's scarcely a weak performance anywhere, and the best are as good as it gets - principally Richard Johnson, who is simply magnificent down to the finest detail, but I'd also single out Amanda Mealing, Deborah Findlay, Nicholas Jones, and Dorothy Tutin. Don't hesitate to give it a go.

4.0 out of 5 stars High quality TV drama-a rare treat 19 Jan 2011
By Gedall
Mixture of costume drama,tragic story of lost love and the failure of people to connect,and a finely observed social comedy.With every viewing,I notice another detail I missed from before - there are so many layers to this piece.Acting and dialogue are superb.Each little scene is carefully crafted.A real treat for those who enjoy a film with depth as well as subtle humour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good indeed 2 Nov 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a superb adaptation of an odd, but I believe important and even outstanding novel, which I read as a young man, and have continued to admire. I still think of it as Angus Wilson's best work. the casting and general approach in this televised version could not be bettered, with Johnson and Spriggs ideal as Gerald and Inge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great British Drama 22 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Excellent British mini-series with wonderful performances from Richard Johnson and Elizabeth Spriggs, really scene stealing. Would recommend this series to anyone who likes good drama or comedy for that matter. Great to see Dorothy Tutin in the latter episodes.
The British really know how to make shows like this and, of course, there are some spicy scenes as well and gay characters to boot. A must for those who like good British drama.
