Absolutely wonderful review, especially about Colbourne and Ben Lloyd-Hughes performance. Well written, and spot on!

He plays him as a tortured, thoughtful, sensitive, intellectual – he is Mr Darcy and Rochester incarnate – the flawed romantic hero with a rare cloak of vulnerability, authenticity and impetuous romanticism. He is handsome, makes Latin sound like linguistic foreplay, looks spectacular on his horse Hannibal, and has the necessary elements of mystery, hurt and closed off depths of torment that are necessary to cause utter confusion and upset for our heroine.
