Desperate Romantics, Season 1HDTV-PGClosed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


In this period drama starring Aidan Turner, Samuel Barnet and Rafe Spall, 19th century London is in the throes of the industrial revolution. 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?

Customer Reviews


I like this show, its something different taking place at an interesting time in history.

Very Funny

If you like period pieces, you will be shocked and appalled with the comedy and graphic sex. It was fantastic. If you need a other reason .... two words, Aidan Turner.

Great show, but definately not "TV-PG"

Just watched the first show with my family, but had to stop half way through, then finish after the 9 year olds went to bed. Great acting, script and story. BE ADVISED, there is frontal nudity and strong sexual content. Probably should have been TV-14 or TV-M
