Almost a 10
29 May 2017 | by ckunertSee all my reviews

I love this series. This is a part of British history that I knew nothing about.

The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is that I was a bit put off by Maria's false eyelashes and lipstick. I doubt these were even available at the time, let alone affordable.
