A superb performance from Jackson.

I am so glad to see Glenda Jackson back on the box, hard to believe she's 83 here, still has such gravitas as an actress, terrific to watch. Overall I thought this was excellent, at times hard to watch because of the subject material, but ultimately rewarding. Twenty seven years away from tv, and nothing has changed. If I'd had any sense I would have saved this for Christmas day, as it's not the most amazing schedule imaginable. However I watched it, and loved it. Refreshing to watch a one off ninety minute drama, I miss this format, not always do you want to watch a seven part drama, this was a nice change up. Watching this and having a family member who suffers with dementia brought it home just how tough it really is. Some uncomfortable scenes, but a great story, and of course the wonderful Glenda Jackson, a winner. 9/10

Sad reality drama with a twist

It must be said when it comes to making dramas the BBC very rarely fails. This was brilliant. Maud is a mother and grandmother tackling life's daily challenges only in reality she is in the depths of dementia. The story centres around Maud trying to find her friend Elizabeth who has gone missing. Nobody seems to care apart from Maud and the frustration she feels is very evident. The current events are also triggering past memories of another missing person in Maud's life but I won't say anymore about that. Glenda Jackson is absolutely amazing as Maud. My husband actually asked me if she has dementia in real life, her performance is so convincing. Losing a parent to dementia is a fear every person must contemplate at some point and this drama echoes that fear with unabashed realism. This is an emotional ride you won't forget in a hurry. A must see.

Heartbreakingly superb...

I watched this last night and Glenda Jackson is heartbreakingly superb as the Alzheimer's victim, Maud. It follows her as she attempts to find out what has happened to her friend, Elizabeth, and how this current mystery induces flashbacks and repressed memories surrounding the disappearance of her sister 70 years ago. It highlights the strain that families undergo whilst living with a loved one with dementia, and how life itself becomes a mystery to the sufferer. Glenda Jackson puts on an incredible performance; at times the film is emotionally distressing and makes for difficult viewing. Her portrayal of how Alzheimer's erodes the sufferer's core personality, replacing it with a violent stranger, is worthy of a BAFTA. The secondary mystery of what happened to her sister all those years ago is beautifully intertwined with the present day storyline. This is definitely worth a watch, but make sure you have you tissues on standby.
