A jewel of a TV seriesBy Francois Ward from Shropshire England , 16 Jun 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]This is an excellent TV series set in India, it gives a real feeling for India at the time of the raj, and is peppered with stars and atmosphere. Throughly reccommend it.

Fantastic Series-Start to FinishBy SoCalVal (2 reviews) , 03 Jul 2013Absolutely outstanding. One of the best things I have watched in ages. Really gives you a sense of what tail end of the British days in India were like and the incredible prejudice.
Such a good film.By a customer , 05 Apr 2013This was even better than I remembered. Watching it gave me the same feeling of embarrassment - the same sorrow that we, the British, could have been so arrogant - well, not all of us, but many. The ending is right - not happy, not sad - just realistic.
A brilliant way to get through winter evenings.By a customer , 12 Feb 2013This is still a fantastic series with superb acting. It hasn't aged over the years at all. Wonderful atmospheric story capturing the last difficult years of the Raj. To be highly recommended.
They Don't Make Them Like This AnymoreBy Ian750 (23 reviews) from Hove , 11 Oct 2012A superb series. Has lost nothing in the years since its original showing. Magnificent acting. Watched the first 3 CDs and did not want to wait for the 4th so bought the boxed set. Having the 'additional features' is also very interesting hearing the actors and directors discussing the making of the series.
Cannot recommend it highly enough
Jewel in the crown disc 4By a customer from England , 08 Feb 2010The last disc was disappointing the story seamed to end abruptly and the storyline was taken up with the political situation and not the characters we had been following. It was extremely well acted.
