Almost as good as the original !
1 December 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had barely seen the original series until this remake or mini-series, however you want to call it, was cancelled. The new series should have been a break-out hit on the Friday night void left behind by "Dallas" if it had not been done in by the Gulf War coverage. That's the only thing that killed the show and kept it from becoming a long-running series.The movie that spawned it was incredible and astounding, everything the original would have been with the budget of a prime-time series. Ben Cross was a younger Barnabus for the Nineties, and Joanna Going was more beautiful than any of the three original Victoria's. I can find nothing wrong with the cast except for the unknown Barbera Blackburn who was called upon to play Carolyn; she just didn't look like she belonged in the cast. Everyone else had fit the bill to a tee ! I'm also sure that if the series had continued, we would have started seeing some of the old DS stars in cameos in new roles.
