I've heard many of the dramatised versions the BBC has produced, and particularly like Peter Coke and Marjorie Westbury as Paul and Steve, their performances conveying great mutual respect between the husband and wife team.
I had expected a straight reading of the narrative to be less exciting than the dramatisations, but the this was not the case. Francis Durbridge has written in much more detail than has been realised in the dramatised versions which seem a little dry by comparison.
Toby Stephens brings the narrative to life in a performance every bit as thrilling as the classic BBC versions.
