In England, the restored monarchy of Charles II has betrayed its promises and reverted to tyranny. Behind the decadence of the Court, a terror machine is repressing the freedoms won for the people during Englandâs bloody civil war. In America, the tentacles of state terror reach the colonists but they, themselves, are ruthlessly stalking their claim to the territories occupied by the native American Indians in a chilling echo of the tyrannical behaviour they seek to escape. Against this turbulent backdrop, four young people - Beth, Hope, Abe and Ned â struggle to choose between love and ideals in the harsh reality of the changing world.
Probably the worst period series I have watched in my life. The Devil's Whore was fantastic, however this was full of wooden actors, bad costumes and the portrayal of Charles II was disgraceful and completely untrue. As I come from a family of historians and am somewhat of an expert on the restoration period and King Charles II, I cannot believe they would have such a mean nasty scowling Charles II. Totally ludicrous. I wouldn't watch this pile of rubbish again if my life depended on it. Far far inferior to The Devil's Whore.
After watching the devils whore the first film about angelica fanshawe I couldn't wait to watch this , it arrived very quickly and I ended up watching all the episodes in one night , it had me glued to my tv screen and have watched it many times now as it's become one of my favorites , would definitely recommend to lovers of period dramas , 100% worth the money I paid for it
