Don't bother if you have read the novel.,
This review is from: The Poison Tree [DVD] (DVD)
I read the novel (which I enjoyed), so I was looking forward to seeing the dramatization on television. Sadly, I was extremely disappointed. Firstly, quite a bit of the book didn't make it on to our tv screens. I know this isn't that unusual, but to me the producers cut too deeply. Secondly, the actors (I don't know any of them) were very wooden, and totally unconvincing. But the most maddening part is that the ending was changed, which seemed un-necessary. If you have read the book, I wouldn't recommend this.
