I can understand your thoughts on Reed's acting ability. She had so few chances to really stretch out and maybe that is why this scene is so poignant.

I especially like the scene that introduces a snoozing Clowance to her father and the audience. All it lacks is a quip from either Demelza or Ross suggesting Jeremy must have left breadcrumbs to show her the way out.

What's to like about Season Three especially Episode 9

Elizabeth and actress Heida Reed. I can't remember exactly how Elizabeth handled in the book Ross's very poor suggestion to have a premature baby and she must try to convince George that  Valentine is hers and George's. The TV version in Season 3 Episode 9 I really liked. I can't up to now remember any great acting by Ms. Reed in the previous series but I believe she really got to show her acting chops in the scene with Elizabeth and George in this episode.  Before I remembered her mostly by her facial expressions, such as looks of puzzlement, disgust, disturbed, anger, desirable, clueless, loving mother-wife and so on. In this scene, she really did a number on George turning him into a sniveling sobbing worm of a man. I am not sure that was in George's character but I liked it here.

 

Brava Ms. Reed.

 Dave - my recollection is that the part you like in episode 9 is close to the book. When the series stays close to the books (rare thought that is) it works well. The difference is that in the book Elizabeth is not friendly to Ross; she is angry with him still but she softens a little and takes on board his advice to not be honest with George about the conception date for the next child. I can't make up my mind about Ms Reed's acting ability and, in particular her acting ability in relation to finally confronting George with his treatment of her. Most people I've heard from about this seem to think she did well.
