Wow - this was fantastic! It really all came together with the last installment and truly broke my heart. I don't see how anyone could not fall madly in love with Hans Matheson as Yury, and Kiera Knightley brought such maturity and worldliness to such a difficult role (amazing at such a young age). Both actors should be commended.
And as for Sam Neill! He was amazing. The screen practically frosted up when he appeared!
I hope that this series is brought out on VHS and DVD so that it can be seen again, and again, and again. In the meantime we will just have to dream of Hans...........!
