This review is from: Parade's End [DVD] (DVD)
Well-acted but very tedious. Benedict Cummerbach's character is unbelievably - and unlikeably - weak, giving way to the demands of his ex-wife as a matter of honour - and dishonouring himself in the process. Comparisons will be inevitably made to Downton Abbey - the latter is unquestionably stronger and better: Downton has a story to tell - this is just intellectual masturbation.
