This is a delightful, gentle, warm and witty little piece of old England. Public school accents, sedate lives and endless good manners all provide a wonderful antidote to the trash Hollywood is currently creating at a million times the cost!

Select a soggy November day in England, get a cup of cocoa, don the fluffiest slippers possible and watch this with complete escapist delight.
