Dir: Julian Fellowes
Starring: Tom Wilkinson and Emily Watson
A damaged relationship is stretched to its desperate limits after a solicitor’s wife is involved in a hit-and-run
This drama is based on the 1951 novel A Way Through the Wood by Nigel Balchin, which had already been turned into a stage play under the title Waiting for Gillian in 1957. There is an early scene filmed at London Marylebone station with Tom Wilkinson boarding a Class 165 ‘Turbo’ DMU, followed by a scene of him leaving Denham station. In a further scene filmed at Denham at night, another Class 165 DMU can be seen departing. This is in fact a computer generated image for although it looks the real deal, the fact that it disappears altogether after leaving the platform somewhat gives the game away!!
