John Thaw plays what appears to be a harsh, stubborn man who lives in a shelfish world. Little does he know that his world can change over a Whisky in the golf course pub! John Thaw's character (Harry) soon has to deal with troubles of the mind, not to mention the heart when he is burdonded by a grand-daughter not only he hasnt met, but didnt know even existed when his daughter dies in a tragic accident.
Harry's world changes as he learns to cope with the expectations of a young child who has just lost her mother, and the arguments that occur when her father appears for the first time in her life.
The story guides the viewer through the trials of a nightmare, from both a grand-dad and grand-daughter point of view. A must for any family, although dont forget a box of tissues- its a real tear-jerker.
As with all dramas that star John Thaw, the story is brought to life, added with a brilliant newcomer, this is another one to watch over again.
