Opinion of the actors, dialogue and hope for more.
One of the best period dramas produced for a while. The dialogue was excellent and witty. Scenery and costume seemed true to time. Altogether an excellent mini series that left you hoping for more. The actors were well cast, Martin Shaw making an excellent but likeable villain, Elizabeth McGovern a very serene Lady Blakeny and Richard E Grant as Sir Percy was just magic. My congratulations to the script writers who wrote the dialogue, the words I will remember - Sir Percy to Sir Andrew in Episode 2 "Ain't life exciting" and Lady Blakeny to Sir Andrew also in the same episode "the hypocrisy of the English tongue". Please let us hope there is more to come after all the Baroness wrote 12 books.
