A BBC Blockbuster breakout
8 September 2006 | by repfromhellSee all my reviews

when books are read pictures ave vivid in the mind and a personal picture is created, no picture is the same but I am reading this book again as I have time to spare and only wish that I could see this mini series all over again. hardcore ferocious characters that blasts away any of the mainstream villains that can be observed on mainstream television series but bringing to life desperate lives pitiful creatures all with low life or no life futures thank you Martina I See where my life unavoidably is heading. Please more of the same for all the people to affiliate with may be to open the eyes of happy families in Virginia Water or the poverty stricken in Shadwell, but whatever you take from this mini series you will certainly take an eye opener from the action and writing of Martina Cole.
