The Diary of Anne Frank

Post by Sid Seadevil on Fri Jan 09, 2009 3:58 am

Now surely the denizens of Seadevil Towers haven't been the only ones watching this superb new adaptation on BBC1 at 7.00pm stripped across this week.

It's been a wonderful piece of television; with all concerned giving outstanding performances - particularly Ellie Kendrick as the eponymous Anne, and especially Tamsin Greig as her mother Edith, who gives a near totally silent masterclass in performance via facial expressions.

Shame on you if you've missed it - it's BBC drama at its best.

Oh and the obligatory Who connections.... it has Lesley Sharpe in it... who also gives an excellent performance.

*nB, we Seadevils don't always agree - anyone who has been to a Drinkly with us can testify to that... so if we both like it - it must be good!

Ans speaking of Who connections - there's also Ron "Mister Magpie" Cook, and an almost unrecognisable Felicity Jones as Anne's older sister, Margot.

*NB: What she said!

Now that is a glowing example of public service broadcasting at its very best.

A superb production. A genuine triumph for all concerned.

Oh, Tamsin Greig's performance was a revelation. And yes, we have it infinitely easier now...and the worst thing is we don't even realise what it is that we have that we should be treasuring so highly.
