Forget Series 4!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bramwell - Series 1-4 Complete [DVD] (DVD)
Very engaging period drama, and the main ensemble cast are excellent. Jemma Redgrave is very good, and so as always is Ruth Sheen.
BUT.... the fourth series is completely off the rails. The characterisation is insane. Jemma's character turns into a complete fruit-bat for no reason, her father disappears form the previous three series with no explanation and the Dr Marsham character has more personalities than a mental hospital. I've no idea what the scriptwriters and production team were doing. Not much in the same room,anyhow.
It utterly spoiled my impression of the series, hence the 3 stars. The first 3 series would rate 4.5 stars, the fourth 1 star if it was lucky. It's still worth watching but I wish I'd thrown away the last disc.

Agree 100%. This would have been one of the best dramas from the 90's if not for the last 2 episodes. That ruined the entire series
