A historical drama based on the novel by Julian Fellowes, the creator of Downton Abbey, it has an exceptionally fast pace for the 19th century.
The premise is the same as any period setting, but the execution is different. The writing is exemplary and the cast is appropriate.
Vices, ambitions, lust and love pepper the proceedings, as we navigate a dilemma which spans 26 years.
An interesting watch with great production values and story telling.
