While the series itself is well done, with excellent filming and occasionally some new facts revealed, the biggest drawback for me is the choice of narrator.

Whatever it is, I find myself switching off after the first minute and have to apply extra concentration to absorb any of the interesting information while trying to filter out its delivery. Generally I fail. Which is a shame, because as I said the series itself is essentially well done.
