A little silly. But it was also gripping, and the cast's enthusiasm was so palpable it was impossible to resist.

A bit hokey, then, but the dramatic ground is fertile: gold, tobacco and sorcery are yet to come fully into play.

Despite the attention to period detail, Jamestown is less captivating than its intriguing premise.

Apr 15, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

With its stunning scenery (filmed in Hungary instead of the actual Virginian wilderness), impressive cast and promising twist, Jamestown's first episode largely delivers.

As a just-plausible-enough period saga from the makers of Downton Abbey, this could run and run.

What hokum, yet what pretty hokum, Jamestown turns out to be... I'm just waiting for the emergence of some cheeky-toothed, doe-eyed beavers, quite possibly animated. For all that, it hits many highs.

Everything that follows is absurd, generic or risible.

Apr 15, 2019 | Full Review…

It's more fun than high culture or history lessons. An expensive soap, in other words.

If you avoid analysing Jamestown from a feminist perspective it is brilliantly silly fun. The drama is sure to be well received by viewers, if slightly lacking in the subtlety that pulls in a huge fan following.

Audience Reviews for Jamestown: Series 1

    Great acting but it would be more interesting if they delved into the history instead of the weird dynamics between men and women. Love Verity and Meredith, they seem to be the most real couple. Alice seems like she lives in a bubble. Would give it more stars except for the way they write it to make the men under the spell of women who only have to withhold their favors to get what they want and women who just blabber every secret they know.

    this is a garbage series, what a mess of information.

    Garbage. Seems to be a watery copy of movies made for Netflix. Can't believe this is by the producers of Downton Abbey. Horrible actors, costumes, story line. Not worth the time.
