ATom Stoppard's BBC2 adaptation of Ford Madox Ford's Parade's End has sharply divided opinions - baffling and boring as many people as it has beguiled - but on one score the consensus has been universal. And that concerns the pellucid, daisy-fresh performance of 22-year-old Australian actress Adelaide Clemens as Valentine Wannop, the bobbed suffragette who manages to breathe passion into Benedict Cumberbatch's crusty, duty-bound "last Tory", Christopher Tietjens.

Valentine could have been a thankless role for a young actress. Clemens could have struggled to shine beside two thoroughbred thespians in Cumberbatch and Rebecca Hall, the latter fed many of the best lines as Tietjens's reckless wife, Sylvia - some aimed against Valentine, her husband's "little games mistress" and "the scrubbed lady's champion of the regular bowel movement". But then a strong pointer to Clemens' beautifully truthful performance can be discerned in the extraordinary determination that she showed in winning the part in the first place.

She was in deepest Louisiana, on-set of a cheapo horror when the script for Parade's End arrived. "I've never been filled with such conviction that I needed to pursue a role.
