An excellent take on 1800 East London
20 February 2013 | by (Oman) – See all my reviews

When i first saw this show it felt a lot like i was watching the Sherlock Homes movie..But i have to admit it's nothing like that

The Plot is managed superbly..The acting of all three lead men is just great..Not once it felt unnatural..Giving all three of them different back stories and their twisted personal lives is clever writing indeed..Different plots in every episode just keeps the audience hooked..Villains from episode to episode are also well written and the mystery just keeps you on the edge of your seat..

The sets of this show are just amazing and i was just hooked after the first Episode..This production from BBC is a fantastic piece of TV..You should definitely give this show a try .
