What the Critics Say

"Charles Dance as Lord Nelson tell us in staccato, economically worded phrases of naval victories and political events. It is Nelson who opens up with almost shocking frankness in courteous, suddenly passionate love letters to Emma Hamilton." (The Independent)
"A good medium for diaries and journals." (The Spectator)
"Letters and journals always make lively intimate listening." (The Independent)
