| Divine series, outstanding Annis
I found this biographical series truly fascinating. I was introduced to it by my grandmother, and I saw it with her, and I couldn't stop watching. "Lillie" is divine in every sense of the word, with sumptuous attention to detail, with the breathtaking scenery and lavish costumes. The music is beautiful and haunting, and the script is sophisticated enough. The story of Lillie, the woman ahead of her time, is compelling and maintains interest throughout. The performances are top notch, with Francessca Annis outstanding as Lillie, playing her with grace, determination and a great deal of charm. Peter Egan plays Oscar Wilde pretty much to perfection, and Anton Rogers is excellent as Langtry. Do I have any complaints about "Lillie"? Not of the mini-series itself, as I found it positively divine, but the picture quality was sometimes a little too grainy and washed out. Overall, I loved "Lillie" and recommend it. 10/10 Bethany Cox
