Really good series
29 October 2016 | by askmom-56095See all my reviews

This show is very well acted. The setting and scenery is magnificent. As an American watching, I love the historical references emerging through the story. Colin Morgan and Charlotte Spencer make a wonderful couple.

The plot, itself, reminds me of the series Ghost Whisperer (2005-2010), in which Jennifer Love Hewitt's character solves mysteries related to those haunting the living. This is much deeper, but still retains that episodic start to finish feeling.

I became familiar with Colin Morgan watching Merlin (2008-2012). His acting completely impressed me. I hope to find other works he has been/is involved with. I am desperately waiting the release of The Rising. I truly think Mr. Morgan can carry the weight of the big screen.
