On TV, it seems, no one gets AIDS by way of love. American shows often give the disease to hemophiliac children. British shows frequently give it to philandering men who have tawdry affairs with prostitutes or drug users. In this BBC import, Liam Neeson plays a professor who sleeps with a drug-using student and, a year later, is found to have the virus in his blood. So he must tell his wife, played by Miranda Richardson, who cannot contain her anger and fear as she awaits the results of her own blood test. As is usually the case with AIDS shows, this one is made with much class and talent. But it explores no new emotional or educational turf.
