Berkeley Square (1998) short review

Why didn’t anyone TELL me this was so good?  This is one of those many BBC miniseries that I missed when it originally came out.  Then I saw it for sale everywhere, but could never find a review.  Well, lemme tell ya:  it’s FABULOUS.  Great acting, great story, GREAT costumes.  Tells the tale of three nannies in Edwardian England, with really riveting story lines for each.  The only problem is that it’s a serial, and seems to have been cancelled after the first season… so you’re left to guess what happens to the characters and story lines.
