Dandelion Dead Classic TV Show
Period drama written by Michael Chaplin. A sumptuous re-creation of a true English murder story of the 1920's, set in Welsh Border country, rich in intrigue and black humour.
Dandelion Dead Fan Tributes7 marian from littlewood: Saw it for the first time ever missed about an hour due to visitors must see again very good Micheal Kitchen he's great actor
6 robin lowther from england: Saw it for the first time today just by chance, while looking for something worth while on the TV. I had no expectations at all but found myself glued to it throughout. So well acted by all in it, but I must say that Michael Kitchen was amazing as the Major.
5 Linda Mitchell from Aberdeen: I absolutely love this drama, have seen it many times and never tire of it, the photography, costumes and atmosphere of the programme are excellent all the actors are excellent in their roles. Has made me very interested in the case and particularly commend Michael Kitchen for his portrayal of the Major.
4 Joan Hammond from London, England: Best bit for me was David Thewlis making shy-boy attempts to pursue his first date!
3 Mrs Tracey Jane Donnelly from Glasgow: The Christmas scene in episode four,was very poignant. The last Christmas those poor children were to have with either parent. A wonderful drama, Michael Kitchen is excellent. Hight time this could be purchased on dvd and vhs.
2 P.Gath from I.o.W.: This is a very good play, my wife & I watch it whenever it is on. What makes it watchable to us is that Phillips was a relative of my wifes father.
1 Aurangzaib from Peshawar, Pakistan: I think Dandelion Dead is a modern classic. All the stars of the drama especially Micheal Kitchen should be declared as national assets, so spectacular are their performances.
