Excellent, in spite of Luce Worsley
25 November 2019 | by paulski1-1See all my reviews

In spite of a horrible narrator, Lucy Worsley, this biographical review of Jane Austen's homes is very informative and provides a foundation (no pun intended) for her masterpieces.

Every time I see Lucy Worsley, she seems more focused on her own appearance and presentation rather than on the subject. She does not understand that documentaries do not have actresses.
