Torvill & Dean (TV Movie ) - IMDbThis was the sort of film in which musical interludes took the place of earned emotion. The scriptwriter William Ivory who wrote the rather more rousing Made in Dagenham, as well as an entertaining BBC4 drama Burton and Taylor, about the tempestuous relationship between Elisabeth Taylor and Richard Burton should have been on solid ground here. Somewhere inside this sweet-natured but curiously flat retelling was a darker, more interesting story about ambition, obsession, passion and what it really takes to make it from suburban Nottingham to the top of the world. Containing more real emotion in four minutes than we had seen in the previous two hours, it was enough to make you swoon. Sign in Edit Account Sign Out.
