So I am in the rare position of being able to give you my opinion of this before most of you will be able to see it. Overall so far, I kind of like it!

If I could name one fault of this miniseries, it is the vast number of characters and stories to keep up with. It hardly gives one time to get to know the characters and hence care about their stories. But I love these two. Now I have to keep watching to see if they make it!

So I hope you enjoy this one as much as I have so far. The reviews were really mixed, so I didn't expect much and was really pleasantly surprised. I look forward to hearing what all my readers think when they see this one.
P.S. I do like Celia Imrie's social climbing character of Grace Rushton. I hope she and her little doggie make it!
N.B. I just finished watching the entire series, and I can absolutely recommend watching it. It gives a real sense of what really went on that night from many different perspectives and I really got attached to some of the characters. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see if they made it off. There is so much packed into these 4 hours that I will likely watch it again at least once. Yes, it is heartbreaking at the end of the last hour, but as we all know how it ends this isn't surprising. So go ahead and watch it. You know you want to!
