Single Father (2010)

In Amazing, BBC, Recommendation, Review, series on 13/08/2011 at 6:03 pm

Another amazing BBC miniseries was made last year, and this one is seriously heart-shredding. Actor David Tennant, perhaps feeling he needs to prove himself as more than ‘just’ the greatest Doctor in history, has you glued to the screen even though the story itself has all the ingredients for a soppy cliché-ridden girlie tear jerker. Instead, it’s pure stupendous acting and writing. Torn between love and grief, Single Father shows nothing less than all that is insanely and beautifully human. This is one of those productions that proves that British TV drama has never been as good as it is today.

I chose to share this clip below rather than the trailer, because events are best kept unknown (I’m advising against watching the trailer anyway and reading reviews full of spoilers here). Just watch it.

Oh, yes: grown men might need tissues too.
