Chadwick / White - Bleak House (2)

It is probably a bit unfair to review this while I've only seen less than half the episodes, but already it's very obvious that the strength of this series lies in the meticulous presentation of Victorian England. Costumes, sets, acting and direction are masterfully recreating the times of Dickens, and are a pure pleasure to watch. The plot itself, is typical for Dickens, a big, crude soap opera, full of drama and dark secrets, but if it is presented so lusciously - who cares?
