Product Description

Product Description

Two-part ITV drama mini-series starring John Thaw as Joe McConnell, a highly respected, principled and charismatic NHS plastic surgeon who seems to have it all: a wonderful, supportive wife, three lovely children, a beautiful home and a fulfilling job to which he is passionately devoted. But Joe is plagued by the sense that something is missing from his perfect existence, and when attractive and feisty clinical psychologist Louise (Frances Barber) appears in his life, he becomes torn between his deep love for his wife and his all-consuming desire for his younger colleague.

I Found this movie rather unsatisfying. The role of the doctor, (John Thaw) and his wife (Sorcha Cusack) and the mistress, (Frances Barber) were all extremely well played and but were rather two-dimensional as people, and the in the end, the mess made and the lives of all three negatively affected was the way such stories go. So why was it so "been there, done that?" Even the sub-plot, the dropped-out son and the street couple didn't have much credibility.

Perhaps they were so married to their respective roles that the humanity was compromised. Doctor, psychiatrist, housewife were defining roles, and at the end, we have a fallen-from-grace doctor, an sacrificial-lamb psychiatrist and injured housewife, but all the ins and outs of the story don't seem to have changed them much. This film runs more on symbolism than personal growth, and as such it lacked warmth and humanity. But it was a good story of a particular type, well told and superbly acted.

Purchased to help complete a collection of John Thaw television dramas that man is, as he occasionally did, playing someone who is neither a policeman nor a barrister.
This is a good series but by no means spectacular and a change is, as they say, as good as a rest.

We tend to buy most if not all of John Thaw's DVDs. We are great fans of his, and this is on a par with all the other DVDs of his that we have watched. Excellent.

I was looking forward to seeing John Thaw in this series, a series I have not seen on TV.

But after the first two episodes I did not find the characters at all engaging, I could not get interested in them at all.

Later in the episode, when his son dies, I found the following scenes lacking authenticity. It was as if he had lost a pet dog or a cat - not his son. He did not seem to grieve at all after the first impact.

The various sub-plots were rather laboured and predictable - dialogue not too good either.

A very mediocre series.

I never saw this series on TV, but I do rate John Thaw as one of the best actors, this country has produced. First class performance, well worth adding to your collection.

This is a story about a family with each member living his or her life, sometimes in a most unanticipated way that leads to unexpected consequences.
