I would love to see this series and look forward to it being available in the US. I have seen the stills from several websites and I saw Toby mention his enjoyment at playing Custer on a BBC interview. He said he thought it would be the closest he would get to being in a Western. I also read he had a rather skittish horse that needed a bit of sedation to do its part properly. Meanwhile, I cannot imagine why there is no photograph of the gorgeous Toby Stephens on this site. He has so many wonderful photos online to choose from. In fact, I would have a hard time choosing if I were your webmaster. I hope you will correct this oversight immediately. If you haven't seen him in Jane Eyre, you have missed one of the sexiest performances on film, ever!
