The Scandalous Lady W (2015).

p02xtrbbA super drama about the 18th century scandal involving Lady Seymour Worsley, her husband Richard and her lover George Bisset (Aneurin Barnard). Starring Natalie Dormer.

The Daily Mail got very dribbly and excited about this BBC drama. Proclaiming it to be a ‘bodice ripper’, they wrote dripping reviews of the trailer.

Upon watching it, all personal preheld ideas about it proved to be wrong. Ultimately, it came across as rather unfortunate – despite a seemingly happy ending, Lady Worsley ended up alone anyway when her lover abandoned her. When I first saw the advertizing for this, it really looked as if there would be a entire miniseries. Sadly not. The story could have benefitted from further development but obviously a small budget was working against them.

Its not amazing but its not awful either. Its more of a story of injustice in a man’s world.

MY RATING: *** / *****
