A very interesting SciFi story which runs for three and a half hours and is split into convenient 30 min. episodes.
This intriguing story is well acted throughout. It is set in a small English village suddenly thrown into turmoil by a mysterious mud slide which appears through the village. Not only does it spread rapidly, but at the same time, some of the residence of the village start to act very strangely. The writer strives to examine how a small village copes with such a phenomenon whilst coping with the buracracy which is always present in 'disaster' type situations. It is also a story which has not been told before, so holds the interest throughout.
4 out of 5 stars. (Posted on 4 February 2013)
