JOURNEY'S END, 1988 TV VERSION- JEREMY NORTHAM, TIMOTHY SPALL

Recommended Posts

Very surprised that staying up late last might to chew some antibiotics, that this excellent TV drama  was shown without much fanfare in the early hours after midnight on Yesterday

    Stands very good comparison with the recent film- the dialogue is much fuller, Edward Petherbridge comes across as  the more mature "stout fellow" than Paul Bettany  and Tim Spall is much better than I recollected as Trotter-  not the casual Tim Spall we now know and love. And Mason the cook is much better done than the portrayal by Toby Jones in the recent film

 

      What a pity this did not flag up a bit more.  Would GWF chums kindly keep a lookout for it-If it's been on Yesterday once, then it should come round again?  And remind me when it does-I might have nodded off.....:wub:

I first saw it on T.V a couple of months before I went to see the cinema version and thought it a much better adaptation .
