Posted by Rissi JC Aug 21, As the war rages, their small community remains unscathed. The Coyne home is a happy one. Instead of tawdry behavior, the script is an intelligent look at questions of anguish and morals. Written specifically for Hattie Morahan, this 5-part miniseries suits her beautifully.
