Storyline

Hornblower captures the French vessel, Le Reve, and is asked by Pellew to sail her back to England so that she can be outfitted for the English navy, and also, as a favor, to convey the unusual Duchess of Wharfedale back home. Unfortunately, Le Reve, Hornblower, the duchess and the crew are captured by the Spanish and imprisoned. There, Horatio finds Kennedy, wasted and hopeless from months in solitary. Against the odds, Horatio must find a way to escape with Kennedy, against Hunter's protests, and with the growing suspicion that the duchess may not be who she appears. Written by Kathy Li

wow, wow, wow, so deep and ensnaring, couldn't look away!
5 June 2005 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

wow, wow, wow, so deep and ensnaring, can't look away! This particular episode is one of my favorites, amazing, and M'Man Kennedy AKA Jamie Bamber is so good in this one! loved it! If i could vote higher than 1- outa 10, i would, hit the mark for good plot line, characters, climax, summary, music, everything was good and then some! I loved it, in case you hadn't already guessed!! If there was thing i would say about it, though is that there wasn't enough screen time for the 'duchess' but aside from that, it was good, and the music was especially good in this episode, the exiting music and it tied the whole movie, i like the fact that, unlike movies such as Master and Commander, it didn't think it was unnecessary to put in background music, it gives the whole episode a bit of light, well done, very well done.
