Patrick Lau's direction is outstanding
22 October 2017 | by safenoeSee all my reviews

Patrick Lau is one of the UK's most outstanding directors, and he delivers the top quality The Fragile Heart with Nigel Hawthorne in the lead role. Nigel will always be remembered as Sir Humphrey Appleby in Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister, and he excels as an eminent heart surgeon in this fine mini-series.

Most of the series was filmed in the UK, with some scenes filmed in the Australian outback. This is top notch drama.
