Description

As the apparent stability of Edwardian England give way to chaos and destruction, English aristocrat Christopher Tietjens finds himself marrying Sylvia, a beautiful but cruel socialite who is pregnant with a child who may or may not be his. Christopher is determined to remain loyal to his wife despite her string of infidelities, but his life is transformed the day he meets Valentine Wannop, a fearless young suffragette. Moving from the glittering yet shallow world of London high society to the trench-scarred battlefields of France, Parade's End is the story of one of the defining eras of the last century; a time when old certainties are being torn down and lives are changed forever.

Parade's end - beautiful

Brilliant drama with fantastic performance from the star cast. Truly English, self deprecating and moralistic, with undertones of a great tragedy on the way but it somehow remains a beautiful, relevant and humorous story. Very nicely done, watch if you like period drama's, pride and prejudice & the atonement.

Hurry up

For goodness sake ... When do we get episode2?????

Slow but satifying

First off this is NOT Downtown Abbey. Its a somewhat convuluted and rambling discourse on the decline of 500 years of "English values" pre and post WW1, with the protagonist, Christopher Tietjens (Benedict Cumberbach), as its Capitan Ahab, pouting and wimpering his way through 6 hours of scenery and costumes looted from "The house of Elliot"..

However, one gets the sense that, in order to make this a series which, in Tom Stoppards own words, one has to "watch intently", a number of the key evolutions of plot are given in throwaway lines or brief flashbacks. Perhaps this is trying to recreate the innovative style of the books, but the end product is that, despite the large themes covered, including changing roles of Women, the delinquence and decline of the landed gentry, good versus evil and what that means, its actually pretty slow. As many of the key plot twists are brief, we are left with lots of long, lingering glances or fixed camera shots of Benedict Cumberbatch tearing up. Its good, watchable, but could be, should be with Stoppard exec producing, so much better.
