lark rise to candleford

My new favorite TV show is
Lark Rise to Candleford
showing on PBS


I have just discovered that I am watching the third season.
Apparently, it ran for four seasons so . . . 
I will now be looking to secure sets 1-2.


From Wikipedia;
Lark Rise to Candleford is a British television costume drama series, adapted by the BBC from Flora Thompson's trilogy of semi-autobiographical novels about the English countryside, published between 1939 and 1943



The series is set in the small Oxfordshire hamlet of Lark Rise and the wealthier neighbouring market town of Candleford towards the end of the 19th century. The series chronicles the daily lives of farm workers, craftsmen, and gentry, observing the characters in loving, boisterous, and competing communities of families, rivals, friends, and neighbours.



Did you recognize Mr. Bates from Downton Abbey?
In this series he plays Robert Timmins

I have this complete show series on DVD and love love love it. Another good series is CRANFORD. I wish there were more of these shows!

This looks like it will hook me like Downton Abby did.
Right now, I'm holding my breath until January 5th!

I loved this series and have it on DVD to enjoy again and again. Have you seen the British series Cranford? I think you'd love it, too!
