I do love a BBC costume drama!

CoverI became so attached to the cast of this superior drama that I was rather forlorn to give it back to the library!  Cranford and its stellar cast made me laugh, cry and smile – what more can be asked of entertainment?

With its delightful view of a bygone age and gentle comedy this series, spearheaded by its bonnet-clad spinsterhood, was a hit in Great Britain and collected a number of awards.

Set in the early 1840s in the fictional English village of Cranford. the story is based on novelist Elizabeth Gaskell works. It focuses on the town’s single and widowed middle class female inhabitants who are comfortable with their traditions and aim to maintain propriety at all times in the face of change.

I could not recommend it more and look forward to the library receiving Return to Cranford soon!
