TOTAL HORSE
The first episodes get you going only to find out the plot in the third you then realise how unbelievable it all was. CRAP

good drama from ITV
Trevor Eve is brilliant,very believable. Bring back more of Waking the Dead! Good cast & soundtrack.

Brilliant ending
Just hope the balloon was high enough that Trevor Eve doesn't resurface in a rewrite of Another Bouquet!!!

Disappointing final episode
I was really looking forward to the final eposide, and I'd been waiting all week for it. It seemed disjointed, and the revelation of the 'secret' was dull and lacked drama. I was waiting for a final twist, but it never came. What a shame!

Disappointing
This seemingly shocked in the 70s. Everyone worried whether it would shock again. It had the potential to shock, but the secret of the father was lame and the potential for chaos accordingly limited. The following simple re-write could have saved it for me: father had affair with Paula (no need for her to be his daughter) whilst she a student (in fact this was alluded to by Gavin in a conversation with the mother), Paula gives birth to Gavin, Paula is murdered by the father, Gavin seeks and achieves incestuous revenge. *Simples*

sombre yet intreaguing
makes Eastenders look like childrens hour - the casting is much cleverer than Packidge thinks!!This will be talked about for many months to come - I hear that the denouement is "Mousetraplike" - lets see!!

Just good entertainment

A poor remake
Anyone who saw the original with Frank Finlay will find this comes a very poor second. It's partly down to the fact that Trevor Eve is totally miscast - OK we are meant to hate him (don't we always) but he is also supposed to be irresistable to young woman - I mean, really! However the rest of the casting doesn't stand up to close scrutiny either. Hope they repeat the original soon, if it's not been lost!

Remake of the 1970s drama based on the novel by Andrea Newman. The lives of Peter and Cassie Manson are turned upside down when their daughter Prue reveals she is pregnant by her teacher Gavin Sorenson. As well as Peter's aching fear that he has lost his daughter for ever, he is rocked by the unnerving certainty that Gavin is on a personal mission against him. Starring Trevor Eve, Hermione Norris, Imogen Poots and Tom Riley
