Quotes

Eleanor Bold: It seems a remarkable coincidence that you should return minutes after Mr. Slope's departure.
Rev. Septimus Harding: Not at all a coincidence, my dear. I walked up and down at a safe distance until I was quite sure he had gone.
Eleanor Bold: It is an awful lot of trouble to go to, father.
Rev. Septimus Harding: I would do the same for Mr. Slope anytime.

Absolute excellence!
30 July 2002 | by (Saltaire, England) – See all my reviews

At 19 years of age and having been involved in the Church of England for most of my life, I watched Barchester unfold week by week with bated breath. I couldn't wait for each new episode. I knew all the characters! I'd met them before! I saw them week by week in real life. My Church of England was just the same as that, only 150 years later. ok, well not quite, but those of you who have seen Barchester know what I mean. Superlative casting, acting, sets. No wonder it has just been voted as the most wanted repeat on BBC. It makes me laugh out loud and then cry too. If you've not seen it, then make sure that you do - soon!
