Audience Reviews for Beecham House: Season 1

  • May 06, 2022
    Beautiful costumes and cinematography. Very boring and poor scrip.
  • Apr 11, 2021
    Loved it. Brilliant cinematography. The most charismatic main character. One of the most riveting series ever on PBS Masterpiece theater. Rivaled Downton Abbey in my mind. How could it be cancelled when it ended with such a cliff hanger?
  • Mar 06, 2021
    Amazing. I just wish there was a season 2.
  • Jan 26, 2021
    Beset by a wooden script, a shallow plot and some truly cringeworthy dialogue, this series smacks more of a soap opera than a historical drama. Lesley Nicol is horribly miscast as an 18th century member of the British upper class. I felt I was watching 'Mrs Patmore Goes to India'. Her character behaved the same and there was little attempt to disguise her northern accent. In fact, disappointingly, there are no noteworthy female roles in this series. I was also irked, from episode one, by John Beecham's hat which seems to have been filched from the dusty archives of the Crocodile Dundee movie. Whoever designed the costumes deserves a swift slap on the wrist for this anachronistic transgression although, overall, the costumes and sets were one of the highlights, as they often are in movies set in India. Disappointing for a British production, however.
  • Aug 03, 2020
    I liked the show and wish there was a second season. I thought Lesley Nicol overacted her part and found her irritating.
  • Jul 23, 2020
    The stereotypes and often stilted acting didn't bother me as much as some, because of the stunning visuals. I kept 'pausing' the action to savor all the details of a scene. One glaring exception was John Beecham and that heavy, long, flapping coat of his! I kept yelling at him that it was hot, send the coat back to England and find something more appropriate to wear.
  • Jul 21, 2020
    I can usually count on Masterpiece Theatre productions for high quality entertainment, however Beecham House fails miserably. The elaborate sets, costumes and exotic locales are wonderful but the cringeworthy acting, overwrought stereotypes had me cringing for everyone involved in this mess. Thank goodness it's only one season.
  • Jul 20, 2020
    What a way to end a series.. Leaving all undone {^^*+^=
  • Jul 20, 2020
    Lavish and fascinating. Pity it was canceled. I dont agree with the harsh criticisms.
  • Jul 19, 2020
    Wonderful locations and costumes. Dreadful acting. Overwrought plot lines.
