This award-winning series follows the fortunes of Eleanor Bramwell (Jemma Redgrave) who sets her heart and her sights on becoming a leading surgeon - an ambition unheard of for women in Victorian England. Her father Robert (David Calder) would like Eleanor to join him in his respectable private practice but his daughter has plans of her own which take her from the decadent drawing rooms of elite Victorian society to the shocking deprivation of the slums in the East End of London. Eleanor’s forward thinking makes her enemies amongst the medical establishment. But her energy and commitment also win her friends. As Eleanor consolidates her professional standing in the hostile medical world, in her private life, she becomes romantically involved with a charismatic Irish physician, a man considered a scheming opportunist by her father. Bramwell is based on fact, and produced with the greatest attention to detail. Eleanor Bramwell is modelled on real doctors, and the stories are drawn from documented cases in the 1890s. The result is a series in the finest tradition of period drama. Bramwell Series 2
A second series of the late Victorian medical drama. With her private practice failing, Eleanor faces tough choices and difficult times ahead, including the surprise arrival of a long-lost relative, the burgeoning of love and an outbreak of the dreaded cholera. Bramwell Series 3

The final series of Bramwell, with two feature-length episodes uncovering the truths and fictions in Eleanor Bramwell's (Jemma Redgrave) life as she faces up to her true feelings for more than one man and the prospect of an unacceptable pregnancy. Also starring Jenny Agutter and Timothy West.

Jemma Redgrave is radiant and gives a terrific performance as Bramwell (she can tuck in my bedsheets any time) and David Calder is superb as her father and their relationship is brilliantly conveyed by two accomplished actors at the peak of their form. It is a gripping and at times moving portrayal of medical care provided in an environment of extreme squalor, rampant alcoholism and widespread crime where appaling sanitatary conditions lead to the rapid spread of infectious diseases and high mortality rates. Occasionally Bramwell gets into trouble when she tries to intervene in the lives of people around her and she has an unhappy love affair but she always bounces back, adjusts her cap and gets stuck into her work. Conditions in Victorian London are reconstructed well and the whole production is very impressive and superbly done.
A sad way to finish an other wise wonderful and gripping series
It is so authentic and well displayed, from the operating room to the beautiful homes shown and of course the clothes worn at that time period.
Jemma Redgrave, as the female doctor impresses with her acting and so do the other main characters,
David Calder, Robert Hardy and Michele Dotrice. It feels like you are right there taking part of their lives.
My husband is just as eager as I am,to see a new episode each night. Last Sunday we could not tear ourselves away from it and ended up watching 4 episodes in one evening.
We live in Sweden and I am quite certain it has never been shown here (how sad), so we feel very fortunate to have come across this wonderful series.
Dr Bramwell is brilliant and annoying, liberal-minded yet alarmingly naive, independent, yet childishly stubborn and headstrong. The middle portion of the set is wonderful, with thoughtful story-lines that challenge prevailing attitudes without being patronising. However, series three starts to go downhill toward the end, and series four is frankly ridiculous. They could obviously only get three of the original actors to return for series four, so people disappear without explanation. Overall, I'm happy to have it as part of my (now extensive) period drama collection, but am unlikely to return to it over and over.

Very dated, but what we ordered. You will probably be very surprised at the poor quality though, you forget how much things have improved. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Ceri
Definitely one of the worst "period dramas" I've ever seen: it hardly warrants the name. Badly written and directed, it's full of inconsistencies and incongruencies, with... Read morePublished 23 days ago by Amazon Customer
