Moving On

Series 4 - 1. The Shrine

Radio Times
Review by:
Jane Rackham

John and Carol’s house has been on the market for months when a man is accidentally killed outside their home. The spot is turned into a shrine and, though the couple try to be sensitive about the tributes and mourners outside, it makes selling impossible and their lives a misery.

Matthew Kelly and Barbara Flynn star in this dark but top-notch and thought-provoking story, the first of a series of stand-alone dramas about people at a turning point in their lives. Coming so soon after the equally fine Father Brown, it must lead daytime viewers to think that their Christmasses and birthdays have all come at once.
