| Pretty good ride.
The cast elevates this story of trust and betrayal.

It's a two parter that centers around an ex-teacher who turns to driving a mini-cab so he can drive around town hoping for a sighting of his daughter who disappeared three years earlier.

The poor chap gets married but his step-daughter disapproves very publicly and soon she's also disappeared.

A couple of red herrings are tossed out for good measure and the whole thing comes across as one of those Ruth Rendell TV things.

The ending, however is a big let down and seems rushed and implausible.

Philip Glenister is the stand out and it's a treat to see him underplay the role of a man tried by the media as he tries to combine the search for his real daughter and his stepdaughter.
