Great Victorian Gothic Mini-Series
16 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this mini-series to death. Whenever I'm in the mood for some good Victorian melodrama, it's great to have this to pop in the DVD player. Thoroughly entertaining; it has a roaring good plot with plenty of twists and turns, solid acting, and beautiful costumes and sets.

I have no idea why the majority of the reviews rate this mini-series so low. I was unnerved by the ending too; it was definitely weird and disturbing, but it was a quality, well-thought out ending. It is fitting as the whole series has a macabre, Gothic tone enhanced by the often-grotesque toys the family this mystery is about toy company produces.

And Patrick Malahide makes a great Victorian ne'er do well! His character fools you with his actions right up 'till the end. And he looks so handsome!!
