I wasn't sure what to expect with this show. However I was hooked from the start, the atmosphere is quite unique, and I can only describe it as Dickensian. The combination of cinematography, music and fantastic casting really transports one off to a whole new world where dickens reigned supreme.
I recommend anyone check this out, not just fans of period drama.
It's a shame this show was messed about with by the schedulers. I'm sure a single regular time slot would have done wonders for it's ratings!
