Absolutely Fantastic!
25 April 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Finally a reason to pay the license fee.

This program is fantastic... Well worth watching if only for the historical knowledge you will undoubtedly gain.

The drama itself is great as well, truly gripping, you watch one episode and simply cannot wait for the next installment.

The realism throughout the three episodes should be applauded, well done BBC, for not conforming to the "perfect world, everything is happy and good" view on the past.

The quality of acting is also second to none, particularly William Houston, Charity Wakefield and Sarah Smart, although the rest of the cast did not let the bar slip.

The music accompanies the tension well, without taking away from the scenes themselves.

Overall, everything you could possibly want from a period drama and more.
