5 Historical drama at its best.cptnstv | 15/10/2007 | See all cptnstv's reviews (1)At first I wasn't going to watch these wonderful films. I had read the books and from the review saw that they had changed a lot of it to allow audiences to understand the character quicker. I am so glad there was nothing else on! I loved it, despite the changes that were made and that the hero was suddenly a northener. The characters were all well written and well played and the battle scenes briliantly executed. I have no favourite episode, how can you choose, I have tried but when I almost decide I think on another. all except for warterloo. don't get me wrong the film is of the usual high standards I just hate watching Hagman and Harris getting killed! I would highy recommend this to any one with even a vague interest in the penninsula wars as they are all based around actual events. what more could you want in a tv show, action, excitement and for those interested in that kind of stuff romance.
