Oh that BBC! Another wonderful production. Moving. Inspiring. All around really well done biodrama. Tissues a must by the time it all wraps up...

Overlong drama is well made but far too leisurely paced. Miranda Richardson stands out.

A fascinating look at the early Windsors in a time before and during WWI. And epilepsy was the great "no see". The director made the movie more interesting by bringing in the results of the Great War, and the connection of all those royal houses throughout Europe.
