probably the best tv series ever,
This review is from: Brideshead Revisited, Collector's Edition [DVD] (DVD)
A tragic love story between two young university sudents, that take separate paths in their lives. (Although neither the writer nor the screen writer were willing to assume any gay content). Performances by Irons and Andrews are outstanding. Don't miss it. Directing is well guided and in the perfectly right tone, intimate and tender. I remember I saw it for the first time I was still a young boy, but now, twenty years later it is still modern and actual.

Surely they are the writer's characters? If he neither mentions nor hints at homosexuality then there isn't any. It is possible to be friends that close without any sexual intentions. In the spirit of review, the book and film describe a beautiful relationship with no overcharged sexual desire cheaply thrown in as is so regularly done in modern novels and films. They don't make them like this any more.
