Moving quest drama
30 May 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

"David"is a teenage boy who is at ease with the world of nature but less so with people.He is living with a family under the auspices of social services and determined to locate his father who left him and his estranged,drug dependent mother.He takes to the road,meets a young eco activist in Jenny,dallies with an MP's wife and becomes embroiled in an environmental protest in the course of which Jenny is seriously injured.The drama is inevitably a little episodic given it was originally a four part drama and it does not always avoid the "its grim up North lad" stereotype .Indeed "Radio Times" declared somewhat unfairly that it made misery into an art form

Lee Ingleby is ideal casting as David with the lean body and haunted eyes of a seeker albeit not a pacifist-David is handy with the fists if need be and has no compunction about dishing out retribution if he deems it necessary

The ending was a bit weak in my view but it is still a satisfying slice of naturalist drama of the kind the BBC used to do so well so regularly
