In the Line of pleasure

by Stephen Tall on May 24, 2006

A week ago I expressed a doubt that BBC2’s superb adaptation of The Line of Beauty would be able to summon up the atmosphere of my favourite scene – when a coked-up Nick Guest dares to ask Mrs Thatcher to dance.

I’m delighted to say my scepticism was misplaced: Nick and Mrs T. rocked, along with the rest of the show. If you missed it, you can catch some snippets here.
