5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling, 27 Oct 2007
This review is from: Bleak House - BBC (3 Disc Special Edition) [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
I loved this series. I started watching them on DVD because I could never catch them in the right order on television. I thought, I'll just watch one episode and see what happens, and watched the whole thing in two marathon sittings. Awesome stuff. The cinematography was great, my only grumble being the jump cuts to show where the action was set was a bit too modern for me and my old eyes. Other than that I could not find fault. The cast was stunning in particular Gillian Anderson who I hadn't previously rated at all, and Denis Lawson, who is just brilliant. The writing was fantastic, making what is a great, though long winded book into a compelling, urgent drama, and the settings/props etc, wonderful. The greatest compliment I can give it, is that my husband, who loathes costume dramas, came in while I was half way through watching, sat down with his cup of tea and watched four episodes straight through before saying he wished he'd have watched them from the beginning. Fantastic stuff.
