Not as good as the rest of the series

"While I loved the beginning series of Bramwell, this series was produced by a different company and didn't seem to understand the characters as well. The acting is still superb, but the writing seems hurried as if the writers were just wanted to finish the production. Although I bought it to get "the end of the story", I was disappointed in the script and lack of character development. I think the second company simply did not have the vision of the first, and it showed, sadly."

"The Bramwell series is available at Amazon and was done by Masterpiece theater in the late 1990s. Its the story a woman physician in London in the late 1800s. It has a genuine Victorian atmosphere, a high realism factor, excellent acting, and a wonderful plot. I recommend it to all fans of the Victorian era."
Good, but the first 3 seasons were far better.

"While the first 3 seasons of Bramwell were delicious entertainment, full of sharp writing and endearing characters, season 4 seems to have come from another place entirely. I found myself even missed the theme song! I thought the writing tortured the two main people in the story and quite frankly, went overboard. Worth watching to see how it ends and of course to see how brilliant Jemma Redgrave's acting is -- no matter what was written for her!"
This is not Bramwell

"The first three seasons were excellent. In Season 4, Jemma Redgrave, Kevin McMonagle and Ruth Sheen were top notch, as was the production in general. However, the storyline was dreadful. The real Bramwell ended with the last episode of Season 3. Season 4 was a waste of money and time."
