Its interesting, I've nearly finished the season watching it off BBC. The season finale is tomorrow night and I still have a couple of episodes to watch off iplayer. Ratings are average, most people moaning about some of the historical inaccuracies of the storyline and some of the sets and costumes.
I didn't set a timer for this show because I was pretty sure I wouldn't like it. Last night I caught on of the 754,547 replays and I found it intriguing enough to set a timer for new episodes. Let's see if it holds up.
