Trouble is, after watching this I always feel like going out and getting a bottle of Blue Nun and a Vesta curry - It's so 70s!
That said though, it is still a relevant, sophisticated and sexy brew treading the fine line between superior incestuous mature drama and the sort of thing Howards Way and Jackie Collins would gleefully do!
Despite the feeling of being fully immersed in the 70s middle class milieu I don't actually feel it's dated all that much. The pacing is fairly strong and quite speedy for that era, the acting is by and large first rate; Frank Finlay is impeccable as always as the father with seemingly impure thoughts and Susan Penhaligon as the cause of them, is perfect as the spoilt little daddy's girl.
Lastly, if anything, it still shits all over the tepid and pointlessly melodramatic Trevor Eve version of last year.
So, pass the Blue Nun I say!
