Dividing Bar

A good-looking miniseries with some excellent performances, but Arthur Lowe always plays Arthur Lowe - which is fine for many roles, but not for the role of Macawber, where he is far too subdued and stuffy. I assume that Jonathan Kahn was cast as Master Davy for his looks - because he can't act for toffee and his performance is painfully stilted.
