Goofs

One of the 78rpm records on display in Morry's shop is an HMV with two white areas at the bottom of the label. This would make it a pre-electric recording from the early 1920s and hardly likely to be in a record shop. See more »

good solid drama
7 October 2003 | by JoshsDadSee all my reviews

i have to disagree with the other reviewer. this a good, solid drama that captures the mood of post war london expertly. the stories mesh together well and the performances, with one notable exception, are first rate. the atmospheric photgraphy adds to the overall feel of the piece and the climax is very exciting.
