brilliant series!
24 June 2005 | by mrstinthehouseSee all my reviews

This was a great series, though I think it didn't last very long. Michael Gambon was quite outstanding as I recall, strange that it took so long for him to make an impression on audiences or casting people. As I remember each episode was a separate story concerning the Kerr family in the 16th cent Scottish border country. The history of Scotland was handled brilliantly, and with a great deal more accuracy than the very annoying Mel Gibson version. The particular princess of France in Braveheart was actually a child at the time, and what history book has Edward 1 pushing Piers Gaviston out of a window may I ask ? Ah I forgot artistic licence, silly old me.
