I'm sure this series is okay, but I found it not suited for my personal taste. I found the drama a bit too dry. Others will probably like it. Rating it "OK" to be fair.

Loved it the first time ... and wanted to watch it again after Downton Abbey. DODS is still wonderful ... but shouldn't be compared to the production/acting/writing of DA -- produced at different times.

Loved it the first time, but now fond it very dated.

The workings of a Victorian kitchen and their society never fails to fascinate.

Love this series, have watched it twice over the years and enjoyed it just as much the second time. Excellent acting, interesting characters and plot lines.

The series starts off well, engaging viewers in the life of an assistant cook who becomes a king's mistress and a superb chef. However, the plot loses focus from the episode "For Love or Money." Comparisons may be unfair but Bramwell -- also about a woman trying to make it in a man's world in Victorian England -- is a far better show in every way.
