The waltz played towards the final scenes is 'Invitation to the Dance' by Carl Von Weber which was composed as a piano piece in 1819 and as an orchestration in 1841 by Hector Berlioz after Von Weber's death. Waltz music and dance was considered scandalous in its early days and only became fashionable in the 19th century. This is one of the earliest waltz compositions. See more »
A very enjoyable story, especially given its based on true, if rather unusual, events.
This is a period movie length drama from the BBC that others probably would have turned into a lengthy miniseries. It felt like there was certainly lots of possible material to pad it out if they had gone down that route.
I gather the budget for this was quite tight due to current cuts at the BBC. It doesn't show mostly, but it felt a little under resourced at times.
Nevertheless its well acted by the whole cast and a very enjoyable story, especially given its based on true, if very unusual, events.
Natalie adds some glamor whilst Shaun Evans plays the eccentric husband in only a way he can.
