Lost for Words DVD

Starring Thora Hird, Peter Postlethwaite, Penny Downie

Directed by Alan J.W. Bell



Deric Longden's teleplay for this moving drama is based on his own experience of looking after his mother in her old age.

Annie Longden (Thora Hird) is an eccentric OAP whose mind does not always operate upon logical lines.

When she suffers a series of strokes, however, her mental condition deteriorates, and she becomes increasingly unable to use the correct words for everyday objects.

Son Deric (Pete Postlethwaite) copes with Annie's gradual decline with patient good humour.
