Paradise Postponed

JOHN MORTIMER swaps a swig of BAILEY for a hefty helping of post-war decline-and-fall histrionics adapted from his own novel and layered with two dozen coatings of A-list sheen. Upper class rotters and softly-spoken damsels pick over the bones of late-20th century East Anglia. Made a star of DAVID “GALLAGHER” THRELFALL as the humbly born creep who rises to be a member of Thatcher’s cabinet to the dismay of both local nobs and wealthy Labour-supporting family headed by MICHAEL HORDERN-alike.

    Adhered absolutely to Mortimerian orthodoxy of Tory=bad, Labour=good in its characters.
