One of my all time favourite dramas
21 January 2007 | by mkb-8See all my reviews

This is a wonderfully quirky drama with an intriguing story and oddball characters. A wealthy wastrel with time on his hands becomes involved in an elaborate plot involving suspected murder, cross-dressing and other murky goings-on in London society. The cast do the bizarre story full justice, with Peter Capaldi, Michael Maloney, Miranda Richardson and the inimitable Richard Griffiths giving sterling performances.

I'm very glad that I taped 'Mr Wakefield's Crusade' back in 1992 since the BBC has never seen fit to repeat it. In addition to the fine acting and cinematography, a plaudit must also go to the talented Rachel Portman for her catchy theme tune and incidental music.
