Product Description

Product Description

Benedict Cumberbatch plays a young English aristocrat who embarks on a perilous voyage to Australia in the early 19th century and the ship he sails is long past its sell by date and leaks like a sieve which make the dangerous voyage even more problematic. The officers, crew and passengers are a motley bunch so his relationship with them presents other problems that he has to cope with.

The ship has to deal with numerous storms, ice and periods when it is becalmed and doesn't move at all and there is conflict among the crew and between the passengers. The reconstruction of the voyage is superbly staged, it looks realistic and believable, the story is totally gripping and exciting and Cumberbatch is terrific in the lead role. You really get involved in the story and I recommend it as a film that gets your attention from beginning to end and never lets go.

It's very difficult ro review this series... The actors are very good, the setting is perfectly displayed, but this sea-voyage is dreary, long, tedious, with "nothing" happening except sea-sickness, bickering, and the ever-present tension and fear of the ship capsizing. It is a voyage of initiation, for those aboard ship as well as for viewers. Those who prefer action movies will die of boredom, the others will come to appreciate the care taken to make them feel as if they are actually engaged in that dreadful but enlightening journey

The TV series is excellent with great acting of a great series of books.
However, I already own the DVD set and I invested a fair bit of money in the Blu-Ray version presuming that it was a properly mastered BBC produced transfer... I am disappointed, mostly.
As has been stated in other reviews, this is most definitely a standard definition transfer and not significantly better than the DVD transfer, but it is slightly. My guess is that the series was video recorded in SD because in 2005 that was really the only option for an inexpensive ship based drama. Film would have been extortionate and in 2003/4 when this was produced there were virtually no useful pro grade HD video cameras in use by the BBC. What we have here then is the best that can be done with the SD master and on my 52" TV there is a VERY small difference in resolution but it's really marginal. Add to that the absence of extras on the disc (unlike the DVD) and the disparity in price and you'll forgive me for not recommending this blu-ray unless it's well below £10 (not when I purchased it) and you don't own the DVD or need the extras.
If it turns out that an HD master of this series DOES exist then this is a total scam!

I saw this mini series about 5 years ago. It is a wonderful adventure story for anyone who loves the sea. This one included loose women, sexually confused men, mental breakdowns, sea sickness etc. I can only assume that because of the present popularity of Benedict Cumberbatch it has been re-issued.

Really fascinating! The set use is awesome! I read they literally rebuilt the decks of the ship from the book to scale and put it on a machine that moved it like the actors were at sea.Lots of throwing up!!!

Great series . Warts an all . Very realistic . Everybody has their faults and qualities and what a journey to make. Nice to see Joanna Page in a role different from Stacey ( Gavin and Stacey)

A Very poor transfer to Bluray.. it looks as though they just transferred a dvd straight to a bluray disc..no enhancements & rubbish sound quality..if you would like the disc then save money & just get the dvd version..
