Good period drama, initially irritating but all ends well.
18 February 2018
Good period drama well acted. Initially the main characters have frustrating personality flaws which can be irritating to watch. Dorothea's pathetic low self esteem and need for victimhood, the Doctor's spineless maleability, his wife shallow, spoilt and avaricious, Fred lazy and feckless, and the small minded Casabon. At least it has happy endings which is a major thing in it's favour and some of the main characters overcome the worst of their personality defects towards the end.
