I know, I know. Masterpiece Theater, British TV show, etc., BUT – have you seen the costuming? It’s exquisite. I love all of the small details – the patterns, the lace, the beadwork, and oh, the hats.
The show itself is actually quite compelling and I think the acting is amazing – subtle, but well-rounded, and the characters are much more dignified and realistic than I think your typical tv character is. They do an amazing job of not stereotyping male and female characters, which shouldn’t be a revelation, but really is.
