Desperate Romantics, Series 1Caution

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.


19th century London is in the throes of the industrial revolution. But amongst the dirty red bricks and smoke stacks are four young, thrill-seeking artists - steadfast William Holman Hunt, naive John Millais, mischievous Dante Gabriel Rossetti and budding journalist Fred Walters - otherwise known as the Brotherhood. Their quest for artistic immortality takes them into some of the lewdest, darkest and funniest corners of the city. Joining them is sassy, sexy model Lizzie Siddal. But is she risking it all with this dangerous bunch? Period drama starring Aidan Turner, Samuel Barnet and Rafe Spall.

Customer Reviews


This show is great; thoroughly enjoyable to watch. Okay, if you really want historical fact then this isn't so great and if you can't let go of what really happened to the Pre-Raphelite brotherhood then don't bother watching this. Ignoring that, this is funny, entertaining and a great show to watch. Try it.

Love it, love it, love it!

This show is really entertaining! The storyline, though not totally historically accurate, is gripping and addictive yet easy to follow, and paired with the strong characters and immature jokes it makes for thoroughly enjoyable watching =D You get a taste of the basic story of the Pre- Raphaelite Brotherhood without having to sit through a boring, in-depth documentary. The modern soundtrack compliments it well too. I'm not usually a TV person, but this has got me well and truly gripped!

Absolutely amazing!!

Truely epic :D!
A brilliant program, with an exciting storyline! Not to mention, Aidan Turner was so amazing in this! He made Gabriel an even funnier character! :D (:
Loved it!
