The shear ivory gown with pink satin ribbon rosettes worn by Geraldine James (Lady Emma Hamilton) to the gala stage show is the same costume worn by Ruth Jones (Flora Finching) in _'Litte Dorrit' (2008)_. See more »
Kenneth Colley gives an exemplary performance in this four part mini-series actually spending a long period with his right arm strapped behind his back, before production started, until he was adept with his left which he wields with great effect. The most memorable of the series part four, breaks with tradition by allowing the viewer to experience the historic battle of Trafalgar as the majority of the men who fought experienced it, in the cramped confines below decks. The majority of this episode focuses on one gun crew who show the polish of months of practice. This all comes down of course to the Death of Nelson, as deeply touching as it could only be. You don't need to be an actor to play the part, just feel with you heart.
