How the hell did this come from that book?!
6 September 2004 | by palagrimSee all my reviews

What an absolute pile of pants. Having read Chris Brookmyre's books religiously since I came across "Quite Ugly...", I was delighted to find out that this drama had been commissioned.

I obviously had too much faith.

Nesbitt is probably the best thing in this show - and even he doesn't quite fit. How anyone can read the book, and then adapt it to this piece of dross is beyond me.

Entire characters are changed, situations are dropped, and to see Parlablane's dramatic break-in reduced to Nesbitt doing a quick chin up and sliding open a bay window... it brought tears to my eyes.

I dread to think what's going to happen with "Country Of The Blind" if this is the benchmark...

Please, just avoid it...
