Why in god's name wasn't a series or even a movie made? A total anti hero!share
When I saw Peter Vaughn listed I said to myself,
"Well that's odd, he usually plays a scoundrel."
My jaw dropped to see such a rascal daring to be Rival of the
Great Homes ! But he sure was good, wasn't he? Completely A-
moral. I did see some of these when they first came out but I
don't remember any particular episode - just that they were good.
I'm a huge fan of anything Victorian/Edwardian that the BBC comes
out with and this really hits the spot. All the episodes so far are
*highly* recommended to the casual reader who reads this forum.
But that Dorrington!
How dare he fleece the Crooks and swindle the Ladies who have been,
errh, "compromised". A Cad, a Bounder !
I've recently seen the first season on DVD and some were hit or miss but both Dorrington episodes were a hoot!
Max Carrados had some guts. Hewitt and Pryde were an interesting team. But Peter Vaughn and his Original Bastard portrayal was truly something special.
A cad and a bounder, indeed!
This is not from the BBC but a rival network in the UK: ITV!
