In 1619, 12 years after British explorers founded the first New World colony in Virginia, Englishwomen arrived in Jamestown-their passage gained by their betrothal to strangers. The troublesome acclimation facing well-off Jocelyn Woodbryg (Naomi Battrick), farm lass Alice Kett (Sophie Rundle), and pragmatic Verity Bridges (Niamh Walsh) propel this handsomely mounted drama from England. Max Beesley, Gwilym Lee, Dean Lennox Kelly, Stuart Martin, Jason Flemyng, and Claire Cox also star.16 episodes on 4 discs. 12 1/2 hrs. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
