I was enthralled! The depictions of victorian England & the realities of living were superb; the acting was worthy of the most prestigious awards; the suspension of disbelief was perfect. I was soooo disappointed that this series ended.

What happened to season 2? There arecso many unanswered questions. Comic Chris o' Dowd is amazing in this lead serious role.

Great show and entertaining, but will the story continue in the "new" land?
