Are there more than 3 series? I feel like I missed something, it seemed to end so abruptly. I've been enjoying it quite a bit, but feel everything is rather unfinished....

Enjoyable British TV series; I am pleased to see that there are two more seasons to watch! I agree with another commenter who mentioned that multiple writers for the show gave some of the characters inconsistent behaviors, but those minor flaws are forgivable. Beautiful fashions and 1920s-era details, and I'm a new fan of Stella Gonet and Louise Lombard.

A good series especially the first season. The episodes switch between several different writers and we found that it made for some inconsistency between the characters. The clothes are gorgeous though and if you enjoy vintage fashion its a real treat!
