Anyone watching? All British actors appearing here...

Sparklingbrook Sun 03-Jan-16 21:08:04

It's quite a commitment. grin It's on but i am not sure. I thought that it was Will from the Inbetweeners but it isn't. grin

TwatTheNinja Sun 03-Jan-16 21:12:26

I'm watching and recording, so far it seems good smile

Sparklingbrook Sun 03-Jan-16 21:13:13

Aww Ade Edmonson.

MajesticSeaFlapFlap Sun 03-Jan-16 21:20:36

It's like posh brit boy bingo.

LineyReborn Sun 03-Jan-16 21:21:38

That one from Downton is a bit pants.

littlecupcake Sun 03-Jan-16 21:24:42

I'm lost already.

I also thought it was wassisname from the Inbetweeners!

Sparklingbrook Sun 03-Jan-16 21:27:51

Thanks cupcake. I now think it should have been him from the Inbetweeners. grin

I am not fully concentrating now.

Sparklingbrook Sun 03-Jan-16 21:31:06

Him from The Inbetweeners. AKA Simon Bird

I love the interfering mother character, played by Rebecca thingie, who we just watched in Billionaire Boy grin.

Bit lost with the story as I don't know the period and haven't read the book, but it's a fabulous thing to look at, gorgeous costumes and sets.

Theknacktoflying Sun 03-Jan-16 21:41:34

I want to like it, but the dialogue just seems so false and far too bright and shiny ....

thenightsky Sun 03-Jan-16 21:41:51

Trying. Not sure I'm going to be able to stick with this.

littlecupcake Sun 03-Jan-16 21:47:06

Haha sparkling That's him!

absolutelynotfabulous Sun 03-Jan-16 21:47:31

Trying but failing! Thought that was Ade Edmondson.

Anyone remember Anthony Hopkins as Pierre in the 70s version?

LineyReborn Sun 03-Jan-16 21:47:46

Has this been edited by my cat?

absolutelynotfabulous Sun 03-Jan-16 21:48:22

Who's the Downton dude?

LineyReborn Sun 03-Jan-16 21:50:45

The Natasha / Rose one. There may be more from Downton.

namelessposter Sun 03-Jan-16 21:54:51

posh boy Brit bingo snort grin

minsmum Sun 03-Jan-16 21:59:33

It's awful

absolutelynotfabulous Sun 03-Jan-16 22:00:45

Oh Lily wotsit. Liking Pierre but can't get a grip on the other characters (note to self to read book).

thenightsky Sun 03-Jan-16 22:00:58

Scuse my history knowledge, but... why did Napoleon think it was a good idea to take on a country the size of Russia? And do so after travelling bloody miles over Europe to get there in the first place?

LineyReborn Sun 03-Jan-16 22:01:08

The battle scenes were good. The rest of it - oh Lord where do I start?

Palomb Sun 03-Jan-16 22:01:51

I quite enjoyed it tbh!

mudandmayhem01 Sun 03-Jan-16 22:02:50

Bit lost, but looked great, was there an incest scene or did I get confused?

MajesticSeaFlapFlap Sun 03-Jan-16 22:04:10

There was some incest... wouldn't be a historical drama without a dash of incest
