A nice little update today. Firstly, I found a little video interview from during the promotional period of Jo’s film Powder which is short but cute.
This episode is neatly framed by Adrian finding love over the internet, a modern day phenomenon that is ridiculed slightly by his fellow taxi driving friend who suggests meeting girls in pubs, the old fashioned way.
Once his Hong Kong girlfriend finally comes to Britain, it is not the culture difference that threatens to divide the pair but the jealous feelings of his daughter’s friend. If anyone had uncomfortable feelings with the age difference and boundaries being crossed in terms of teacher-pupil relationships in Holly, then the feelings of abject despair that followed as the viewers were shown the very poor passes made by the young girl and the near destruction she causes after Adrian does the right thing by rebuffing her advances was chilling and supremely acted by both David Morrissey and Jo Woodcock.
