I have always been interested in the time of The French Revolution and have always found the story of The Scarlet Pimpernel to be awfully dramatic and romantic. T
he first episode aired in Australia in 2000 and I remember being glued to the television, something which was quite unusual for me at that time.
Richard E. Grant is amazing in the Role of the dashing Scarlet Pimpernel and of course as the arrogant upper class Sir Percy Blakeney. His charm is very endearing indeed. He is exactly the right actor for the role!
Give this mini-series a chance to charm the pants off you! I have been unhappy with the other comments on this page!
