The BBC has a history of excellent British period dramas and very gritty and compelling crime mini-series.
It's with bated breath that I anticipate this series. The crossover into 1860's New York is exciting yet, at the same time, I'm nervous. Can they pull it off? I have no doubt it will be authentic; scenes and language researched perfectly- but will they capture the essence and still deliver a captivating drama? I sincerely hope so. I've so longed for the US to experience the subtle brilliance of our home grown drama and am so far disappointed with what BBC America has chosen to air. Fingers crossed here for this original drama that we haven't even seen yet.
So, what are your thoughts?
