Memories of Well Loved Series
13 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This Show left such an impression that even today (2005) whole scenes still come back to me. The Death of Hereward's faithful House Carl The Seduction of Hereward by the use Scorcery Albert Lynch's Face and the sweep of history portrayed within what was a relatively low budget production. This was typical of the BBC Classic Series of the time. The Script and Plot Lines combining to give the viewer a real taste of the Period the drama was set in

Althrough I remember even after all this Time one anomaly

when a Girl says to Hereward " Do you Fancy me"

If a copy of this still exists I urge you to see it

It is well worth it despite it's age
