I wish the trilogy had been completed
5 September 2006 | by derjerzySee all my reviews

This series based on the Horseman Trilogy of R.F.Delderfield has a rather rocky start, but after a change of directors after episode 5, it becomes much better. So much so that I wish the series had been completed rather than left at the end of WWI. Presumably it wasn't drawing the audience that the BBC wanted, so they pulled the plug. With the change in direction, the story is filled out, but lack of context for characters in the previous episodes must leave those who have not read the books wondering what is going on. Nigel Havers and Prunella Ransome grow on you just like the series. Havers, then a young actor, ages very well, so does Ransome.
