Samuel Pepys at his mischevious best: dalliances and subterfuge in 17th century London

Fig.1. Sam Pepys – the 17th century ‘Alfie’

Having followed this since 2011 I have to wonder if there will ever be a CD or Podcast. Catch this final series in the next 7 days.

Wonderfully evocative, better than any TV miniseries from Netflix, Blinkbox or Amazon Prime. Just as visual. Not so violent. Far more raunchy.
