This is a three part mini series from the BBC with each episode lasting an hour. The story's good and something significant happening in each episode and it keeps us on our toes. I must admit I found the final episode slightly disappointing, not that they did something stupid with the plot or people acting out of character but because I found it a bit flat after the earlier two episodes and had seen opportunities for some twists.
It was good though that there were many threads to the story and these were on the whole resolved and handle well, Sylvia characters aside. The acting was pretty good across the board.
It's a shame this appears to only be release on DVD, rather than blu ray, as I have to say the style of the film was absolutely amazing, I would like to have seen it in high definition. The rain and neon light we're very redolent of Bladerunner and the over head shots of London were beautiful. The whole thing was filmed exceptionally well.
The excellent cast also brings this story alive - amazing performances by actors such as Christopher Eccleston and Andrew Scott make this drama feel very realistic - and therefore make you a lot more interested and intrigued in how the story is going to develop and what is going to happen to these charecters. The plot itself, is very well thought through and provides the audience with just enough twist and turns to fufill across the series. The plot is very good at getting the audience 'pulled in' and making them become connected to these charecters.
A great peice of drama, definatly a reccomended one to watch! :D
Needless to say this all leads him on a downward spiral into the beginnings of alcoholism, even dodgier criminal involvement and impending marriage breakdown. But determined to redeem himself and recapture his early idealism he decides to `come clean' with the electorate and finds his refreshing honesty has made him a hero with the public and he's touted for mayor!
The production design appears to be the bizarre lovechild of `Amelie' and Ridley Scott's Blade Runner; it always seems to be raining. We never know where or when it is but this dark city was very reminiscent, to this viewer at least, of a kind of slightly futuristic green-tinged Manchester. The acting is first rate - we get a characteristically nasty cameo from David Hayman - and the pressure on both Demoys and the viewer builds to a nerve shredding appropriate tension. Disappointingly, however, the ending seemed just a little too pat.
Nevertheless, despite not being perfect - what is? - in its depiction of a descent into alcoholism, corporate corruption and human frailty it makes for stylish and compelling viewing and very well worth a watch!
are involved with his job, he drinks to forget and that is exactly what he does... he drinks
until he blacks out and has no idea what he has done as a result... it comes back to him, bit by bit... the horror
of what he is doing to himself, to his family and to others makes him step back and look at himself and try
to right some wrongs.... Dervla is wonderful as usual.
