Wonderful to see it again
4 October 2000 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Why can't we (the British) make period mystery and drama like this any more? Everyone is superb, especially the Duke and his freeze-dried Duchess, who despite her stiff upper lip is attractive and sympathetic. Only Lady Mary lets the side down with some atrocious acting. She calms down for the trial scene, though. The costumes and interiors are perfect, but the actresses and make-up department just couldn't bring themselves to use the authentic bright red lipstick. I never noticed the Conan Doyle references before: Lord Peter says he's been chased by a 'hound of the Baskervilles', and falls not into the Great Grympen Mire but into Grider's Hole. And that's not all that's pinched from the 'Hound'.
