| Just not very good
Catherine Cookson is a great writer but she has not been well served by Tyne Tees who made this TV film from the book of the same name. I think I read the book once but you get used to this sort of thing in a film adaption,that vast chunks are omitted . In this one a couple of kids are drowned in a boat and there's hardly a mention, The ending is totally stupid and unreal. Maybe this is Catherine Cookson's poorest story as there's little drama anywhere.Just a lot of people arguing about nothing much at all other than a lack of money and some rather silly reasons for scrapping. The 15 streets are supposed to be the divide between the rich and the poor,a common enough theme in Catherine Cookson
