Desperate Romantics, DVD  DVD



All six episodes of the BBC period drama series depicting the turbulent lives of four young artists in mid-19th century London: William Holman Hunt (Rafe Spall), John Millais (Samuel Barnett), Dante Gabriel Rossetti (Aidan Turner) and Fred Walters (Sam Crane).

Against the backdrop of the industrial revolution, the young men's quest for artistic freedom and immortality takes them into some of the lewdest, darkest corners of the city.

Along for the ride is free-spirited redhead Lizzie Siddal (Amy Manson) - but just how much is she really risking to associate with this dangerous bunch?
