Based on the novel by Catherine Cookson, "The Black Candle" from 1991
stars Cathy Sandford, Nathaniel Parker, James Gaddas, Denholm Elliott,
and Sian Phillips. This isn't a slicked up British upper class drama
like "Downton Abbey" -- rather, it's the story of a man with black,
uncontrolled anger episodes (Nathaniel Parker) and how he affects those
The film focuses on two sets of brothers in 1880s Yorkshire: the upper
class but impoverished Lionel (Parker) and Douglas Filmore (Robert
Hines) and the lower class Skinner brothers, Joe (Gaddas) and Fred (Bob
When the brutal Lionel gets Lily Whitmore (Cathy Sandford) pregnant,
Joe Skinner marries her to give the child a name. Lionel is out to
marry Victoria Mordaunt (Tara Fitzgerald), a guileless young woman
whose aunt, Bridget (Samantha Bond) is a successful businesswoman.
Joe's brother knows the truth about the baby and tries to blackmail
Lionel; he pays with his life, and Joe is accused. Joe worked for
Bridget, and she doesn't believe he's capable of murder. She wants to
know the truth.
This is kind of a "what goes around comes around" type story, with
Parker playing a vicious man with a dreadful temper who comes up
against his sculptor brother, his father, and the determined Bridget,
even as he victimizes his wife and romances a woman 30 years his senior
The script could have been better - this is one story that might have
benefited from being done in two parts if not more. We don't get much
buildup to some of the events; they happen rather suddenly.
Needless to say, the acting across the line is terrific. I thought
Parker had a bad temper on "Inspector Lynley" - as Lynley he comes off
mild-mannered compared to his performance in this. He's incredibly
young here, too, and very handsome.
"The Black Candle," as befits the title, has a dark, heavy atmosphere
and a couple of terribly violent scenes. It's good, but not great;
we're used to only the best coming across the pond. This is good, but
it's not Masterpiece Theatre.
