    I don’t know if my previous comment was lost in cyberspace or not. It was not completed so if it does show up perhaps you could delete it. I wish the show-runners had made Vanessa and Brona French and English respectively so that the actresses playing the part wouldn’t be trying to cover up their natural accents, with the occasional slip. I have only watched the show intermittently and have wondered if it is played half for laughs (a bit like the British Hammer Horror stories of the 1960s and 1970s). If one doesn’t take it too seriously Josh Hartnett and Reeve Carney are easy on the eye I guess.

      No it’s not like a Hammer film. Eva Green was excellent in it, as was Timothy Dalton. We thoroughly enjoyed it and I am looking forward to next season, the play on literary characters is really interesting. The acting is good, it looks gorgeous and it’s got some good traditional themes.

    Maybe an Australian or American doesn’t catch the slips in EG’s accent. I find her accent a little jarring. I’m not saying that EG speaks bad English; indeed her English is fluent but she doesn’t sound like a native English speaker. I didn’t watch the whole series of course – to her credit I will say that for a person who is largely renowned for good looks she did let herself be made rough looking on occasion. I haven’t seen her in many programmes or films to be honest and maybe I would be more appreciative if I saw her acting in her native French language. I’m not the TV police anymore than I am the book police so it’s horses for courses I guess.
