This review is from: Sensitive Skin : Complete BBC Series 1  [DVD] (DVD)
This was a rare TV gem - and one that deserved far more recognition that it got at the time. The writing is smooth and intelligent but it is the performances that made this one shine for me. In particular, Joanna Lumley - Davina's awkwardness, silences and detachment are well captured. There is humour, and warmth but also some darkness, frustration and regret. Thanks to the BBC for this one. If you've not seen it - my advice is to buy it, and settle down for a treat.
