  • Writer Aschlin Ditta struggles to produce a convincing whole, but does come up with some nice vignettes, particularly the McGregor/ Hodge and Lester/Tate scenes, as well as some memorable conversations about what if the great fire of London had never happened, political correctness and the varying sex- symbol status of Felicity Kendall and Penelope Keith...
