The Accident, Ch4

Given up on this already, not much of a story to begin with, and another 3 to go. 

Stars Sarah Lancashire once again in a well promoted drama, and once again you can't hear a word she says, only this time supposedly in a welsh accent. 

How this woman gets the plaudits she does beats me, surely a director, producer, editor  or someone in these series would tell her to speak up!, 😤

I loved her as Racquel, I thought she was great

The ones I read said it was awful! Bad acting, bad Welsh accents, bad storyline eg: gas leaking and yet the rescuers are using angle grinders with sparks going everywhere.

I watched this and thought it was awful. I saw it on twitter and basically a hundred people also saying it was awful.

The set up and writing is terrible in my view. The emergency services were not behaving like they should. The plot seems to be idiotic written by someone who is very poorly informed.

The Welsh accents were not a great idea and on Twitter there are lots of Welsh people quite offended as the accent seemed to drift around different regions of Wales.

 

I've seen several of Sarah Lancashire's shows over the last 5 years or so and all of them were more believable than this.  A very poor effort.

I expected so much more of this.  Some very decent talent involved.  Timescales were so way out it verged on farce.  It was as if very early on the producers realised it was going to be a dead duck so didn't even try to create any real depth to the storyline and characters, and got it all wrapped up in record time.  Perhaps they couldn't afford to pay Lancashire for any longer.
