4.0 out of 5 stars A great thriller, January 29, 2012
This review is from: Oktober (DVD)
Fans of the novel won't be disappointed. Stephen Tompkinson absolutely acts his socks off and makes for a compelling sympathetic lead. The changes made to the novel's story are quite broad and some work better than others, but in essence it's the same story and many of the key scenes remain, including the supernatural elements that made the novel so memorable. The more complicated strands and the globe-trotting nature of the book have been dropped for a more streamlined story with a neater resolution that works very well onscreen. The direction is mostly slick; the scenes shot in a snowy Switzerland in particular give the serial a filmic quality, and the actions scenes carry a lot of pace and punch for a nineties television drama. However, like many programmes from the same era, the quality of the picture and lack of widescreen does date it, but it's still a great British drama and an sf highlight of the 90s.
