During the turmoil of the French Revolution, English aristocrat Percy Blakeney, often aided by his League of friends, secretly undertakes various daring missions as the Scarlet Pimpernel.
Robespierre.The Incorruptible is class in a glass.Ronan Vibert's marvellous portrayal is the main reason I watched all this series.Apart from Robespierre, I also liked Chauvelin and Monsieur Foumier.I tend to agree that Margeurite was somewhat miscast, and that many of the female characters were often badly dressed, made up and coiffed.Talking of which, Robespierre really DID own a cauliflower wig a la Salieri in Peter Shaffer's 'Amadeus'! AND a stripy jacket in that precise colourway.
