5.0 out of 5 stars life saver, 23 May 2009
I really would recommend this stuff. It's saved me from colds more times than I care to remember, and, if taken early and properly, will stop most colds cold, if you know what I mean.

It's not fun to take, and it makes you feel like you have a cold briefly, but then it should clear things up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shameless plug for my father's tome, 6 Oct 2008
This was originally published in the early 1990s, but has fallen out of print. This edition is the same as the old, but with an extra pamphlet my father wrote on Weedon Barracks. All proceeds for the book will be given to the Church Brampton Roof Restoration Fund, or an equivalent charity to maintain or restore the building (not the people or worship in it. My father's request.)

1.0 out of 5 stars Big disappointment, 6 Oct 2008
One can see what they're trying to do with this, but, love him though I do, Stephen Fry is just not a good enough actor to carry this series. The result is a beautifully shot but ultimately dreary small town piece with characters in danger--and in several cases guilty--of succumbing to stereotype.

1.0 out of 5 stars Weak on so many levels it's hard to know where to start, 6 Oct 2008
This review is from: Midnight Man [DVD] (DVD)
Script, story are so poor it's not fair to blame the acting; they had so little to work with. But please don't waste your money on this if you like the political thriller genre. This insults the intelligence too frequently, and shamelessly plunders much better versions of the same thing. The music is not bad, and there's a spoonful of humour in one episode hinting at something better buried deep in the original concept.

Sadly this one is a good argument for not buying on the strength of other people's reviews on Amazon. I fell for it; I'm writing this so you don't have to.
