To watch the series on You Tube, click here. I liked it, didn't love it, although I liked the companion book a great deal. My husband and I watched the series last year on YouTube and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I agree with you about some of the personalities being annoying, but the costuming, setting and some of the interesting events made up for them. I also agree with you that I would love to be able to experience such an immersive Regency environment -- and certainly wouldn't be complaining the whole time.
Vic: I see, I will try to get hold of the book then! Hi Anna.
A Regency Collection Revisited: Vol. 1 : Angela Brown :
Great post. I always think the interpretation of history is an interesting subject.
There are all sorts of resources and ways of helping us understand the past. Archaeologists find new evidence, there are original documents to read, photographs, sketches and paintings from the past to look at, all great resources. Old diaries and letters help us get into the personal lives of individuals and what is becoming a lot more prevalent these days, building new versions of buildings from the past or making artefacts and things from the past, using a range of historical evidence.
This helps our archaeologists and historians interpret the use of tools, materials and old technologies. It all adds to the sum of our knowledge and understanding. Going to a place of historical significance helps you see the structure,the environment and physicality of a place and adds another useful element in our interpretation. However, people dressing up in costumes and trying to re enact the past has always made me wonder about that activities value. The people who do this have their modern experience of life and can they really understand the past any better by dressing up?
I suppose it can be fun. I don't want to be a total kill joy.
I've been having a think. Perhaps I have been a little unfair. Costume drama is about interpreting literature from the past and that is very important. I think the making of costumes and recreating materials, patterns and designs is a fantastic exploration. OK I agree, if you make a Regency dress or costume I suppose you have got to try it on and prance about a bit.
All the best, Tony. Tony: You have made a valid point - people who dress up and try to enact a Regency lifestyle may not understand the past any better than if they were simply reading history books and visiting museums. We see this in the show, as the women especially struggle to see the point of living such a confined life and, comparing that to their modern lifestyle, complain about their lack of freedom in the house.
This kind of an experiment is more of a role-play or a game - and I think for many of the participants it was a challenge they wanted to have - can they survive in the house? Anna, I haven't seen this, but will put it on my list. I'd like to have participated in something like this when I was single--wouldn't care to live apart from my husband for eight weeks, and he would not be at all interested in doing this. I'm not sure I could cope for long without modern plumbing!
One thing is certain, I would not be sitting around making chit-chat with a bunch of bored women; I would be alone somewhere with a good book and a proper cup of tea! I would have never participated in something like this. I'm sorry, but I don't think I could stand it.

It's one thing to read a book or watch a movie set in this period. It's another to try to live during it. I think it would take a person who views the past through rose-colored glasses to endure it. And I'm just not that type. Do we ever find out if the couples ended up together in the "real" world?
Would love to see an update, especially of the "May-December" romance So would I! I read that Lady Devonport and the much younger Mr Fox-Smith did carry on their "inappropriate" relationship beyond the series, but I have no idea if they're still together They broke off their relationship after a year, I read. Thanks for the link! Shame that the couple didn't last, they were very sweet together Anyone know what happened to Miss Braund and Captain Glover.
I believe they ended up together at the end? I would have soo loved to be able to participate in something like this.
