Very enjoyable
25 December 2003 | by StockardSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this whole mini series. I was very lucky to find it as it has now been deleted here in Ireland. The only bad thing i have to say was that the beautiful Stephanie Beacham as Therese, was not in it enough! I have to say i enjoyed her character more that Josephine.
