My complaint is the incredibly poor transfer quality (knocking the fifth star off my rating). Expect the quality of a VHS tape that you've had for a while. Some episodes are better than others, but a digital enhancement was the least this wonderful series deserved. Further, three episodes are put together on each disc as one long playing "part". At times this is obvious at others not, but this a poor decision, particularly in the first episodes. Two and a half hours is a lot of viewing without a set break point especially for someone new to the series. This also makes it feel a bit cheap and rushed to production. Unfortunately this combined with the slow pace may discourage further watching but please persist...you will be rewarded.
The Duchess is a wonderful pearl...well worth the view, a shame it wasn't given a bit of a polish before it was put on the shelf.
This show is loosely based on the the real-life Rosa Lewis. She was known as the Duchess of Jermyn Street and ran the Cavendish Hotel in London.
Gemma Jones is excellent in the lead role and June Brown of EastEnders fame is also great as her mother. Victoria Plunket from the TV production of "How Green was my Valley" 1975 is truly excellent as Mary the long suffering friend of Louisa.
Richard Vernon, John Cater, John Welsh are also stalwarts in the show and there are a host of famous names coming and going throughout the 31 episodes.
The Show would absolutely get 5*****, but the dvd package lets it down a bit. There are no special features and the episodes are not separated which means each disc is one long Chapter as opposed to 31, 50 minute episodes. I don't know why it was done this way. It is a bit of a let down. Needless to say the "Series" itself is absolutely well worth the money and I would certainly recommend it.
The Volumes are at a very good price now and you can also get the complete series as an import for a steal of a price. Recommended Highly.
