The Secret Life of Mrs Beeton
I saw this advert on the BBC, and was instantly attracted to it as it was a period drama with wonderful fashion and one with plenty of passion. This programme follows the life of Mrs Beeton who wrote a handbook for women in the Victorian age and married Sam, a poor publisher. All actors do a wonderful job and show real emotion. The story is thoroughly enjoyable with some beautiful country locations and a good supporting cast. Mrs Beeton's life, is however, is one that is tainted with tragedy, but nonetheless you can really see the love between her and her husband. Brilliant casting, and not bad at all for one and a half hours.
