Highly moving.
11 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

I have just sat through the entire series in one evening. It was far from 'boring', in fact i found it to be one of the best things I've seen on the BBC all year. I have seen some comments on other sites which quibble over small inaccurate historical details - such as the Midlands bus in episode 1 - but I find that sort of critque nit-picky, especially if you take into account the FEEL of the show, in the way it is both acted and shot. I found myself loving and hating all the characters, trying to figure out what they'd do next, how they would cope with this or that. As for the show being 'depressing', well, quite honestly - what did someone watching a show about WW1 expect? You get what you sign up for. Yes, it is depressing, but its the kind of sad that makes your heart swell and your mind race, waiting impatiently for the next episode to start loading to see where they'll take us on this highly emotional journey. It felt dirty, beautiful and very real indeed. High props. Lovers of period drama, a MUST SEE.
