User Reviews

 
The best TV series ever made
14 September 2001 | by gyllenspSee all my reviews

The very finest of British actors in a splendid production. I recommend everybody with interest in quality to buy this video. A historical drama which is intense and accurate. Anette Crossbies and John Gielgud performances are beyond Oscar quality.
