Terrific production
3 January 2002 | by (New York, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a gripping account of a person not well known outside the U.K., Oswald "Tom" Mosley, and his rise and fall in British politics.

Jonathan Cake is magnetic -- he takes on Mosley's persona and exposes his fatal flaws, bit by bit. Jemma Redgrave is heartbreaking, and the rest of the cast is superb.

I knew nothing of Mosley before viewing this series, but found it compelling. It is a first rate production. Pick it up if you can.
