Good series...terrible format
A G Pym | 10/04/2005

"The series content is very good, however the company that produced the DVD did a terrible job of formating the episodes/scenes. They split a one-hour show across two DVD's to save using a fourth disk in the series. In doing this, the scene access for the second half of an episode will not play; it jumps to the beginnig of the next episode. The only way to view the 2nd part is to fast-backwards all the way to just after the start of the scene and play from there. If you go all the way back, it takes off at the begining of the next episode. Very Frustrating to deal with the formating faults on this DVD. I will think twice about ordering another DVD from this studio."
Beware of Format

"Bramwell is an outstanding series. The rating of 2 stars is for the following reason. To add to AGPym's formatting issue, Shanachie has also issued 7 episodes and labeled the dvd as season 1. According to the PBS web site I printed out with the Bramwell retrospective, listing all seasons and episodes, this dvd combines seasons 1 and 2 (which originally totalled 8 episodes)and leaves off the final episode of season 2. This missing episode involves a subway (underground) train crash which I did originally see when the series was new. Also check my customer review for the so-called season 4.
Bramwell - a view of Victorian London

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Brilliant series which illustrates the prejudices of Victorian England against educated women. Also graphically shows medical practices of the time and the attitude to the poor. Combining this with excellent acting and costuming make this a series worthy of recommendation."
