TV Review: The Secrets Of...
Belinda’s been checking out Netflix and discovered the Secrets Of… series. If you like castles then this might be for you!
The PBS Secrets Of series.
The great thing about watching commercial free stuff, especially things like documentaries from America is that there isn’t the constant recap that tends to happen once we, the viewer, comes back from the add break.
As we know from the Vikings review, I love me some history. So it’s no surprise when I was sucked in by, The Secrets of the Tower of London, and then, The Secrets of Hampton Court. There are a few others, and I will be watching them, you can be sure of that.
I’m glad they chose to use a British Narrator, because an American accent wouldn’t feel authentic.
We look into the back stories of the monarchy and the motivations behind much of what went on inside these magnificent buildings. It really makes me want to head off to England to check this stuff out in the flesh… or stone as it may be!
The big question is, do they actually divulge any secrets we didn’t already know? Guess you’ll have to watch and find out.
