However, what makes this brilliant drama so sad is that it gives us a small insight into the world of Alzheimer's disease and Jim Broadbent is just superb in his portrayal of someone who suffers from the disease.
What the writer (Danny Brocklehurst) has cleverly done is to weave a drama around the disease without making us go for the kleenex and getting us all depressed. At times we can even laugh about the disease which is so very true, yet so utterly sad.
In conclusion, a first rate drama with brilliant perfomances by Jim Broadbent,John Simm and Olivia Colman (who plays tom's sister).
Highly recommended and please watch it in one go !
