A young Englishman plots revenge against his late cousin's mysterious, beautiful wife, believing her responsible for his death. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms.
We are all aware of the greats of the Victorian and early Edwardian ages as the history of Britain are full of all their names. But we know little about the lives of their servants. We have no idea what their lives were like. This series fills that gap. It's fascinating a study of a life of drudgery and most times sheer purgatory of the duties and expectations of servants in a life of no rights and at a whim of a household. It was poorly paid slavery. Then it goes on to document how they gathered their rights. Dr Pamela Cox delivers the series with a passion and gives a very human side of the story. Her voice and smiling face always makes her watch-able. I somehow come away from this series a little bit more socially aware that in our modern times there are people in this age still working with no rights and suffering similar exploitation
