Absolutely great
10 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

This series takes the history of its setting very seriously, the costumes are top notch and if the "murder of the week" genre is a bit overused, I think this is one of its best manifestations on TV. I find the acting top-notch, which makes characters very easy to love or dislike (and the cast is quasi-exclusively Australian). Some have complained about how slow it can be, I think it's a welcome change from testosterone-fueled action series and it suits the character profiles much better. There's a very distinct atmosphere to this show, a bit different but very appealing in my opinion and I would recommend it to pretty-much anybody.
