Fabulous
14 February 2018 | by BeamermanSee all my reviews

I'm really surprised by the number of negative reviews on here. The Last Post was a fabulous drama. I can't speak for the historically accuracy of the details but the cinematography, the scenery and the overall picture painted were beautiful and rang true to me.

The story unfolded very effectively over the six episodes giving a mix of the overall political backdrop with a number of more personal dramas each of which was engaging and interesting.

The acting was a delight. Just about every performance was perfect.
