5.0 out of 5 stars Here's what you need to know, 5 Feb 2012
John Gammon (Brighton) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Armchair Theatre: Volume 2 [DVD] (DVD)
I've seen none of these, but I'm rather surprised that Volume Two like Volume One features later episodes of this series; it would have been much better to work in some of the more groundbreaking 1960s episodes, such as The Trial of Dr Fancy or The Lover. Anyway, Amazon are never going to shift any of these unless there's some product information. The following is from the Network DVD website:

Wednesday's Child
A doctor takes an attractive nurse into his home to help his wife through her convalescence. The stage looks set for an affair. But events take an unexpected course, and in the end, the doctor's wife has to make a curious choice.

`You don't want to believe a word your dad says. Nobody else does.' Young Ray hardly needs the advice. A budding poet, he particularly wants his father to go with him to the poetry competition at school - but father has something else on his mind, and Ray's awakening disillusion is confirmed.

This review is from: Armchair Theatre: Volume 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Whilst watching this DVD, I realised just how far film and TV has progressed. Nevertheless, this is a good example of the genre of the time and really brings back memories. There are appearances by a number of really accomplished actors who show how versatile they truly are. Really good viewing for all fans of the Armchair Theatre days.
