Customer Review

on 26 May 2010
This series is historically very accurate.I particularly liked how the more controversial personal aspects were dealt with. It is impossible not to feel a deep compassion for Edward VII and lament how Queen Victoria failed to allow her son a much greater interference in the state affairs. As king, in such a short reign, he is justly very well treated, especially in what concerns his activity in foreign affairs. Had he lived a few years longer one could think WWI might have been averted. As a portuguese I also admired how the figure of the Marquis de Soveral is so correctly shown.
As for the acting, just one word: superb.
In all, a series not to be lost if you are interested in the history of the period concerned.
