Question:
Are the Romanovs protrayed through this whole movie? or just a few episodes? If they are protrayed in just a few eps, which ones?

Cheers  ;D


They appear several times physically and are mentioned frequently in the movie. They are all visible in both the first and second part.

Yes, I read about that in today's paper! And although many of us (including me) have taken issue with certain aspects of the script, still I am glad that it has been celebrated. At last, recognition for a once "lost" prince!

I loved this movie/show, and the family all together with their glowing white garments, looking like angels. I cried both times I saw it.

My copy finally arrived and I love it.
I always thought of Alexandra as being most at home in England.
I know she became devoted to Russia but I still thought she was most comfortable speaking English and most happy in England.
BBC is usually so good about being authentic.  Do you think Alexandra was that removed and uptight by the time of the trip to England and do  you think the Royal children were that aloof?  I don't think the rooming situation in Ekaterinburg was very realistic.  Never the less I loved this film and hope for a longer BBC film based on the last Imperial Family.

I didn't like the cellar scene either, mostly because of the little errors, like Alexei walking, yet again (I THINK, don't quote me on this) a servant was missing. I liked that one of the servants carried Jemmy, although I'd always though Anastasia held him and he was alot smaller. Ah well. I also didn't like how LARGE the room was. It looked more like a basement than a cellar.
Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we're gone and wonder who we were? How bravely we fought? How fiercely we loved?

I saw some of this and I liked what I saw of it. It focuses on history from a different viewpoint, which turns out to fascinating.We always like when they bring minor characters from history, and see it through their eyes. I think people think they get more insights that way.

As I've already said on the Windsor thread about this series The Lost Prince, why were the Romanovs even in it at all, let alone their gruesome death scene - quite unnecessary.

Prince John would have barely met Nicholas, Alexandra and their children so I don't understand this.  

I realise that some indirect characters have to be included at times to provide an historical backdrop etc., but the focus should have been far more on Prince John's parents, brothers and sister, grandparents etc., how they related to him and how they coped with his disabilities.

The Romanovs?  Totally irrelevant here.  Their inclusion spoilt it for me.

 They were not totally irrelevant in the movie because they were people that Prince John remembered and perhaps, if it can be said, even obsessed over. Even though he only met them once, he seemed to remember them, especially Marie, quite vividly. He makes drawings of them and writes letters to them. The inclusion of their death and what happened to them was appropriate not only for historical content, but to evoke sympathy. These were people that Prince John cared about and they died, almost foreshadowing his own death.
