What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Because BBC did not renew The Crimson Field for a second season, it follows that PBS just aired the last episode of this amazing drama. Perhaps knowing they were limited to six episodes is the reason PBS and Masterpiece Theatre did so little to promote the series. Its brief existence must also be the reason that so many questions are left unanswered, with plots and subplots incomplete and intriguing characters who never achieve their implied futures. That being stated, I remain pleased that I saw The Crimson Field and experienced the first five rich episodes. It made the disappointing finale worth it. Maybe one day it's worth will be realized by a company willing to employ the writers of The Crimson Field to provide answers for the millions of viewers still wondering what happened to their favorite characters. We can only hope.
