Excellent
5 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is just one of the best Scarlet Pimpernel series l have ever seen, Richard E Grant is ideal as the Pimpernel and Martin Shaw stands out at the evil Chauvelin, the series also benefits from having the same director Patrick Lau all through series 1 & 2.

It's not hard to get these films as most can be bought from any of the Pound shops, but well worth the £6 if you can get all 6 parts, l have to mention also Elizabeth McGovern who plays the Pimpernels wife Marguerite, all in all a well acted, well staged production, and seeing that guillotine from time to time makes one shiver at the very thought of it...
