In 1851, London is in the throes of the industrial revolution. But among the dirty red bricks and smokestacks 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.

Not fabulous. submitted by snabbleon on July 21, 2018, 1:01pm I expected more from a BBC period drama. Ok but no depth and not very interesting. Nice scenery and costumes but the script and characters were very shallow. I started reading about the real artist's online 20 minutes into the DVD because there wasn't much to hold my attention on the screen.
