Elizabeth is Missing

I really didn't think a play would do the book justice but I thought it was fantastic. Glenda Jackson was absolutely superb. Anyone else enjoy it?

We’ve recorded it ... I found myself unable to read the book when it was given to me a few years ago ... it was all a bit close to home at the time and I have the book to a friend ... however I’m a huge Glenda Jackson fan and having heard her talking about it on the radio the other day I’ll give the programme a go within the next few days, now that (hopefully) I’ve got a bit of distance ...

I have read the book which was well done. The trailer looked very good (as in superb acting etc). Decided I didn't want to handle it though.

Much as I admired Glenda Jackson, and thought it an interesting storyline, it made me dread the possibility of developing Alzheimer's even more than I did beforehand - it was a frightening portrayal of how chaotic one's mind becomes.

i, too, have recorded it although i feel a trailer gave away the gist of the story - which i am annoyed about.

We watched it tonight on iPlayer, Glenda Jackson is electrifying, absolutely brilliant, and terrifying.

Completely agree, Suelle, OH said exactly the same.
