Do you like period productions of crime and punishment? Then this is for you. Gritty, reasonably suspenseful with complex story lines and scripts that work well for the setting, albeit with a few anachronisms for the time.
Acting is top notch, positive role models are presented, sets are amazing and overall production is intriguing.
I am constantly amazed at how much work was invested in each scene of this show, how much thought was put into script and storyline.
That being said, English entertainment simply is not for everyone, but if that's a hurdle you can jump and you like a good period mystery series this is as good as almost any.
