Lucy Brown aka Claudia Brown 10 out of 10
29 June 2007 | by doctorcrichtonSee all my reviews

I just want to say Lucy Brown is excellent.... I really liked her character, her and her place in the plot. I thought she was great and I went to all of the trouble of registering with this site just to say that! And what I'm giving 10 out of 10 is her. I hear she is single and living in London.. Well if she fancies a date with a real professor...just a few years older then she knows where I am!! : )

I cannot believe the last writer doesn't like her acting... I thought she added a real believable dynamic and very interesting character to the entire series, fully believable and someone I cared about as well with interest. I saw Lucy Brown in Sharpe's Challenge and she was excellent in that as well. I cannot comprehend such a view as her being abad actress. It really makes my head spin to even conceive or anyone thinking such a thing. I am dumfounded. I dare say she could play anything in the Shakeperean cannon if she wished,. I despair at such lightly thought out personal prejudices ..... She was absolutely great and the best character in it for me. Totally well done Lucy Brown..... Love from me.More of the same!
