I liked this series of years ago & always curious to see how these actors progress in their careers. The writers offer a wide view of societal issues coming out of the Victorian Era at the beginning of 20th C. I felt it was a good depiction of poverty, the class system & values of the time.

A very well-done, period series about a pioneer woman doctor trying to practice medicine amidst the unacceptance in the male profession. She faces a lot of challenges and shows dogged determination to continue to live according to her conscience, even when she has to go against the culture of that time. Wether it's to be the first to ride a bicycle, and wear pants to do so, or to speak up to the head surgeon when in strong disagreement with him. Well-being of the patient is her first priority. She is passionate and idealistic, yet, still has much to learn about politics and her own imperfections. Great costumes and acting. Throughly enjoyable movie. I recommend it.
