I was amazed at the positive reviews of this drama. While all the supporting actors did well enough, (apart from the wooden performance given by her father), I found Lisa Harrow's performance as Nancy pretty awful. Apart from her atrocious Southern accent, (which, at its best, pronounced 'ou' as 'oo' and, at its worst, moved between Hampstead, to Ireland, to Scotland and back), there was no light and shade in her performance so that the character was completely one dimensional.
The script was tedious and too much time was spent on the character's early life, waiting for something interesting to happen.
The best thing about it was the costumes and cars! Not one of the BBC's best!
