1 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Anybody who loves biographical dramas/series, beautiful period detail and classical music will love The Strauss Family. I have very little to add to the two other reviews who have summed up the brilliance of The Strauss Family so well, but I'll try. I fall under all three categories in my first sentence, so naturally I would want to see it. With the beautiful costumes, elegant settings and scenery and crisp photography, the whole series looks gorgeous. The music as you would expect is magnificent, one of the reasons why The Strauss Family is so popular in my house, certainly makes a difference to those yearly New Years Day concerts. The writing never feels jarring, instead it is often dynamic and sophisticated, the story is paced beautifully and superbly told and Strauss and his family all feel compellingly real. Stuart Wilson is every bit as magnificent as the period detail and music, and Anne Stallybras, Barbara Ferris, Jane Seymour, Eric Woofe and Derek Jacobi round off the strong cast. Overall, a superb series. 10/10 Bethany Cox
