A Most Moving "Edwardian" Experience
Both Claire and I found the long series enthralling. It's certainly better than most when it comes to historical accuracy (being conscientiously based on Sir Philip Magnus' excellent biography) and, as thoughtful and compelling viewing, it would be very hard to top. The writing, acting, editing, sets all represented a level of excellence that moderns rarely reach.
The 13-episode series is currently available on the Netflix instant download feature or via CD discs. We couldn't recommend it more highly.
