Thank goodness I read good reviews about Hornblower, as I reckon it's got to be the best navy drama around. The characters are great and interact really well with one another and the denouements of the stories are never obvious.

It is a must for the box set

This is one of the best hornblower's so far, demoted to lieutenant, and on half pay, hornblower is stuck in plymouth forced to pawn his possesions to pay his rent. that is until he is reinstated as commander of the hotspur, then the action and drama begins, which I wouldn't spoil for you. There is a good mix of action, but this one also shows hornblower begin to think about marrage and family. As always there are lots of naval and land battles. The dialogue is easily up to the usual standard and the story moves along briskly. As with hornblower DVD's there are no special features except scene selection. however I feel the story and production values more than make up for this. This is part 1 of 2, so to see the conclusion you will need to purchase Hornblower: Duty.

This would make an excellent present. It is ingeniously packaged. When you remove what looks like a book in a slipcase and unfold it you discover 6 DVDs. This represents very good value. Stories are: the Even Chance, Examination for Lieutenant, the Duchess and the Devil, the Frogs and the Lobsters, Mutiny and Retribution - all of these are already reviewed as individual DVDs. There are no special features such as making of or historical background which is a pity.

This episode, with its partener 'Retribution' a close second, is my favourite out of all 8. It sees the return of our old friends Pellew, Matthews, Styles and, of course, Hornblower. Though absent from the book, a place is found for Archie Kennedy, and his cheeky smile really brightens up the screen. Paul McGann makes an excellent, and very welcome enterance as Lieutenant Bush. A tale of loyalty and mutiny follows, as they serve under a mad captain and unassertive First Lietenant. This is an interesting interpretation, but it stays within the bounds of the book, and really manages to flourish. A few unrealistic blue-screen effects, and one or two convictionless lines, fail to mar this great programme. Well done.
