A high quality, extraordinarily well produced bbc drama, and not a corset in sight! This had been recommended to me by several people, but I was sceptical; how could it compare to the big budget counterparts from the US. But I was wrong to doubt. This show is wonderfully produced with style, charm, and a slick understatedness that many US shows could learn from. After the first few episodes I learnt to spot the twists, but the show was still very enjoyable thanks to the strong acting, quirky direction, perky soundtrack and familiar locations.
