Seductive, sensual, powerful, vivid, colorful, wicked, and wonderful! Best period (1930's) mystery that I have ever seen, by far!
A great mystery series, but as good as the plot is it's the wonderfully rich and vibrant characters that make this story as great as it is. Superintendent Tyburn (Trevor Eve), is a wonderful hero who has depth, likeability, sensibility, and charm. Emma Fitzgerald (Susannah Harker) is a dynamic and spirited, a great heroine. Max van der Vuurst (Joss Ackland), is delightfully wicked, a real twisted freak, outstanding played!
