Horatio Hornblower: The Duel (1998) and Vanity Fair (1998) were both in production at the same time as series one, which made it a challenge for the costume department to locate enough boots and clothing to outfit all the extras. See more »
I have watched a lot of the BBC's excellent costume dramas, and of course was not disappointed in The Scarlet Pimpernel. The acting is first rate, with Richard E Grant making a very handsome and witty Sir Percy, and dashing and sexy Scarlet Pimpernel. The locations are beautiful, the costumes breath-taking, and the sword fights amazing! I hope there is another series, otherwise I shall be ringing up the Beeb crying for more!
