Trivia

Louis Scatcherd, Sir Roger's son, is referred to as "Sir Louis" when he arrives to see his ailing father. Since he has not yet inherited the Baronetcy from his father, he would only be "Sir Louis" under 3 possibilities; 1) Louis has, somehow, been knighted on his own. 2) Sir Roger Scatcherd was able to claim the ancient right of a Baronet to have his son knighted at the age of 21. Although such claims were being ended during the reign of George IV (1820 to 1830), perhaps Sir Roger got a special privilege as part of his Baronetcy.

3) It was a goof. See more »

Goofs

User Reviews

 
Trollope, Fellowes and McShane all doing what they do best

Must've been a treat for Julian Fellowes to get his hands on a real Victorian novel, instead of churning out new eps of that pandering pastiche he's been working on for the last few seasons- Solid Trollopian plot (sundered lovers and missing heirs and family secrets), great cast--Ian McShane not exactly playing against type as a rough-diamond railroad magnate; nice to see Alison Brie of "Mad Men" as the husband-hunting heiress and Inspector Lewis's old boss as one of the snobbish gentlefolk. Stefanie Martini, who only has one other IMDb credit, is perfect as the strong-willed heroine (so much more relatable than those soupy Dickens girls!); not unexpectedly, the picturesque exteriors and the slightly dorky Mid-Victorian costumes and décor are right on the money
