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,
Balls are savored and wildflowers gathered. Women contend with worries that lead them to hard realizations of their limitations. “Perhaps I will have to forgo my darning circle!” a concerned lady about town sighs.
