Alicia von Rittberg,
In 1477 Charles the Bolds dies, his only child is a girl which cannot rule w/o a husband. Meanwhile in Austria, Emperor Frederick III and his antagonist Louis XI France battle over said marriage prospects, battles ensue, tragedy falls.
It's becoming rather difficult now to find a European produced/written production that does not hit you over the head with situations and abnormal relationships that are extraneous and have nothing whatsoever to do with the story being told. This is a story about some of the giants in the medical profession during the late eighteen hundreds yet their stories are trivialized and the writers simply must, yes must write into what could have been a very good series the fact that two of the nurses are having a relationship. This occurred in the third episode and was the end of the line---and interest in the series---for my family. There was absolutely no reason to take such liberties in order to showcase 21st century morals into a series of a hundred or so years ago. This nonsense seems to now be endemic with most European productions. Don't bother watching this as you will learn nothing about that era's search for answers to some of the most common diseases.
