Four films and much joy,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Britain's Serial Killer Box Set: A Is For Acid / Harold Shipman Dr Death / Brides In The Bath/This Is Personal: The Hunt For The Yorkshire Ripper [DVD] (DVD)
The box contains four separately packaged films (one of them, 'This is personal: the hunt for the Yorkshire Ripper' is almost a mini series, 3 hours long). All of them were made at roughly the same time (2002-2004), but cover very different periods: 'The Brides in the Bath' early 1900s, 'A is for Acid' 1930s and 1940s, 'Harold Shipman Dr Death' and 'This is personal' late 1900s.
Each of the films is very well made, well written, superbly acted (Alun Armstrong in This is personal!!!). Each is worth watching in its own right, but putting them together creates an even better effect, of a bizarre series following the most notorius felons in Britains history. Not to mention the financial aspect - the box costs hardly more than each of the individual films..

You're right of course. I mean the joy that may come from the great acting, lovely costumes etc. And it really does here.
Thank you for commenting!
