What a disappointment...
After watching A Woman of Substance and Hold the Dream, this final installment was a bitter let down. I don't know why Jenny Seagrove was not in this, but the usually excellent Lindsay Wagner was on auto-pilot as Paula O'Neill and Anthony Hopkins was wasted in a pointless role. Can you tell I didn't like it yet?!?
A wafer-thin plot, totally ignoring the best parts of BTB's book and a decidedly dicky script did not redeem this - well, I don't know what to call it really.
The whole thing also looks very dated, even though it was only filmed in 1992 - it looks more like '82 to me!
I would advise people who have read the books to stick to the books and the first two mini-series and avoid this one like the plague!
