TV version of wonderful books
8 April 2002 | by (Bletchley) – See all my reviews

One series of this show has been released to TV, and it's pretty good, but a little slow.

It is a poor cousin of a marvellous series of books. The first novel, A Touch of Daniel introduces us to a family, the Brandons, which becomes more and more extended as aunts and uncles move in. There's a huge sense of reality in the dialogue and characters. In "A Touch of Daniel", a baby born to the household seems to have a miracle power... Hugely funny - books that you will read and re-read.

The other books in the series develop the characters, and focuses mostly on Carter Brandon, his girlfriend Pat, and his Uncle Mort. The reading order is: Touch of Daniel, I Didn't Know You Cared, Except You're a bird and Call it a Canary.

Hopefully they will release more of the series, but I'd really recommend you read at least the first book, if not all four.
