The Pallisers

Show Summary

Welcome to The Pallisers guide at TV.com. This epic length dramatization of six of Anthony Trollope's great novels-often called the best sequence of fiction based on British Parliamentary life-is one of the crown jewels of the Golden Age British period drama. The story follows the fortunes of the youthful Glencora and Plantagenet from the marriage that was forced on them through the joys and heartbreaks of both their personal and public lives over the years. Other characters, most notably Phineas Finn, come into their lives and the intrigue, scandal, loves and loss that each encounter adds depth and richness to the story. The BBC spared no expense on this production, thus, the acting, costuming, sets and locations are all extraordinary and help us move easily into this world of the Victorians. As episode after episode pass by we get caught up in the drama and passions of their lives. We look forward to seeing what will happen to them next and when the series comes to an end we feel a bit sad that they won't be stopping by anymore.moreless
