A brilliant Victorian drama telling the story of hardship of working people.
26 July 2014 | by legostlegionSee all my reviews

This clever Victorian drama set in 1830's England depicts the suffering and hardship of the working person through a time of change. And with great actresses like Kerrie Hayes who plays the role of apprentice Ester Price you can see the hardship those people endured through such difficult times. This drama passes through the events like the abolishment of slavery to the introduction of the poor law and as time moves on in the series we the affects of those events to take hold with the character's and environment. Finally like I mentioned before, this series has some brilliant actors & actresses that reflect hardship and evolution of the way who were poor are treated.
