I liked the telling of the beginnings of modern bacteriology. I had Google on the ready, to look up every new name which appeared - they were people who had a huge impact on our world. They are shown with all their faults and failings, as well as their successes.
I was sceptical about the introduction of Arthur Conan Doyle (creator of Sherlock Holmes), which I thought was just a dramatic device, but Google showed it to be factual, and what followed on was also based on fact.
An extremely interesting, and educational (in the good sense of the word) series.
