The purpose of a preview (Look Inside) is presumably to whet the appetite and encourage one to buy/download the book. All that this "preview" does is to give two one-line titles, i.e. (1) Introduction and (2) Interview, and there is literally nothing else. All that I learned from this is that the interview is preceded by an introduction. Hardly conducive to my buying the book.

A marvellous, heart-warming series starring four superb actors which millions of viewers fell in love with in the winters of 2012 and 2013. Since the individual DVD series cost around £12.50 each, this set for under £20 is a real bargain. (Unless, of course, there are extra features on the single series DVDs but not on the box set. Does anyone know?)

And the third chapter, which might have worked as a film since the action kept cutting between two men talking in one place and two women in another, was hard to follow… Read more
