| Disappointing
While not a devoted fan of P.D. James, my husband and I have enjoyed several of her novels. We looked forward to the entire series of P.D.James adaptations in this set. But they were produced badly, and we can't quite figure out why. All of the actors bounce between being wooden and melodramatic, even though after looking up their other work they seem to be actors of high caliber. The camera angles seem borrowed from soap operas--even the music never seems to fit the action on the screen. The director, producer, screenwriter, or all three simply did not know what they were doing or did a very sloppy job. They are not unwatchable, but we found ourselves laughing at scenes that were supposed to be dramatic because they were so overdone.
